Immediate action needed on flags
Comments re article 52812 Flags needing attention Mayor Harris has plan TBA
By Doug Beard
I, along with other citizens of Columbia and Adair County, appreciate the display of our nation's flag throughout our community.
When I arrived home for the weekend, I was shocked by the display of our nation's colors in tattered and pole wrapped conditions.
As we prepare to celebrate our day of Independence this week, I would hope that the flags that are in these conditions will either be removed or released from their poles to fly proud and free.
I think we all remember being taught, from an early age, that the American flag should never be displayed in a condition that does not command deep respect and honor our country.
I wonder what those visitors traveling through our city during the holiday period will think when they see the Stars and Stripes displayed without proper attention...Many of these flags look like they came directly from a battlefield.
It's great that there is a plan to get the community more involved with a flag maintenance program. But let's take immediate action to correct a situation that is unacceptable.
Thank you. - Doug Beard
