This American Flag flew from vessels during the WWII European Campaign

Today is the 2020 election. I went to New Orleans a few years ago for a week to help do repair after the Katrina damage. During a break from our work, we visited the World War II Museum, and I shot this photograph of the flag.

The flag is a little worn on the edges but is mostly together. Even as it was flown over different vessels during the WWII European Campaign, the flag has endured.

The flag is a symbol of our freedom and liberties in the United States. We are experiencing great distress over issues and leadership. It is causing much anxiety today especially as we wait to see the outcome of the election.

Our nation is very diverse on many issues. Perhaps our goal should be to focus on the meaning of our flag. The stripes represent our 13 colonies. The stars represent the 50 states. Red symbolizes hardiness and valor. White symbolizes purity and innocence. Blue reminds us about vigilance, perseverance and justice.

Can we focus on these colors and the true meaning behind the flag?

No matter what is the outcome of the 2020 election – is it possible to promote peace and not violence?

Can we have diversity with peace?

Happy 2020 Election Day!
