“My response” to “I Also Wonder”

Dear Editor:
In last week’s “I wonder” letter, the person had the right to voice their opinion. It’s the American way! If you want to, set on your porch, drink your bottled water, pet your cats, watch your lazy kids come up the driveway without the garbage can! This is all fine with me! But my problem is your being proud to sit and watch your tattered flag fly! Now you’re walking on the fighting side of me and many others! Over a million American lives have been lost and nearly that many more wounded or crippled for life defending America and what the American flag stands for! So I am sure that if you or your children can’t take down and replace it,   the VFW or American Legion will do it for you! If you even fly the flag, very few in Busco do! Even the new government center doesn’t have one! Also, if you don’t fly the flag you shouldn’t criticize those who do! I may be 79 years old but I’m not too lazy to bring in my garbage can! It’s not a lawn ornament! And yes, I proudly fly my flag! And it’s not tattered! “America, Love it or Leave it!”
