Last week was all about various flags and this coming weekend we will celebrate our country's independence with flags. They will be flying in parades, from houses, flag poles, trucks and on little sticks in the hands of children. We love to wave our flags.
Hanging above the stairs as I go down to my basement is a big NASCAR flag. Flags are made of material, yet they stand for so much more. They represent something we hold as important to us and something we love. You won’t ever see a Jeff Gordon or Jimmy Johnson flag on my truck, but Kyle Busch is a different story. Despite its athletic prowess and difficulty, you probably won’t see me holding a flag representing ice-skating; but a flag with a big bass on it could easily find its way into my hands. Those are things I enjoy and would proudly display for everyone to see. They’re an ingrained part of my life.
