Same sort of thing in my neighborhood MPP - Far too many of our society have lost sight of what the flag represents and how to properly provide respect and support for what it stands for.  "It's only a symbol" some would say so what's the big deal?  Those are the ones who don't understand what real symbols are about.  They have forgotten or never learned about what Patriotism is about.  Flying the flag or not flying th eflag is not a complete measure of patriotism but it is an indicator of what the people think about patriotism.

Those of us with children or grandchildren in our public schools need to monitor and teach or reteach those young minds what patriotism is all about including respecting our nation's flag and displaying it proudly.
