The Tattered Flag

I photographed this flag on a sailboat a few years ago. It had immediate meaning to me but I have never shared it. I recognize, as we all do, that flying a battered and torn flag is contrary to our flag etiquette as well as federal law concerning the proper handling of flags. A battered and torn flag like this often evokes feelings of anger in vets who will naturally see it as disrespectful. Being a vet myself I treat the flag much differently than others I know who haven't shared that same military experience. I mean no disrespect here.

Today, though, today that deeper meaning for me sings through. Our country is battered and torn, much like this flag. We seem to be coming apart at the seams and we stand by helplessly and watch the madness unfold. Today though, today this battered and torn flag tells me "We are still here."
