For some reason, in Omaha, just about every other house has an American Flag hanging proudly out front. While it doesn't seem that this should be a strange sight, I guess it is. We just don't see it often in the Boulder area for some reason. I wouldn't have noticed this were it not for Sam ......
Sam - "Why does everyone in Omaha have the American flag hanging in their front yards?"
Aaron - "Because they are proud to be Americans, and they want to show it." (Of which I snidely remarked under my breath - "Yes, they're equally proud to be Nebraskans with all the Husker stuff displayed everywhere." seriously - it's disgusting.)
Sam - "Well are WEEEEE proud to be Americans?"
Aaron - "Yes"
long thoughtful pause by Sam.......
Sam (very matter of fact states) - "Well then we should get a flag."
Perhaps we shall. (And I won't even disgrace our flag by hanging it next to an even bigger Husker flag.)
We ARE proud to be Americans. I don't think about it enough. Maybe displaying a flag will help.
