After reading a letter from Walter Sosnosky of Kenilworth [in last week’s “The Readers’ Turn”] regarding the failure of our citizens to fly American flags, I couldn’t resist commenting on his article. It has been one of my pet peeves for years that so few citizens choose to fly the flag at least on every designated official holiday. I can count only five flags being flown on my whole block, which should make my neighbors ashamed. It also makes me angry that folks living in our wonderful country are not willing to take the time and make the effort to honor her by flying “Old Glory” every day instead of just on holidays. I personally fly my flag 24r hours a day by illuminating it from dusk to dawn, which follows flag presentation guidelines.
