America The Beautiful

[This post was originally written on April 23, 2008, but I decided to save it for a day like today.]

While driving here and there, my kids will often play what they have termed "The Flag Game". The rules of the game are simple:

  • If you see an American flag - wherever it may be - you "call" it by proclaiming in a loud voice: "Flag!"
The other day, I decided to play the game. By myself.

Guess what?

America won.

In the 16-mile commute between my house and my office, I counted 52 flags. Fifty two! It was no holiday. It was no special occasion. It was just Tuesday.

Yet one more reason I am thankful to be an American.
