It still hurts.
What hurts even more are the jerks who think they are better than everyone else for refusing to salute our flag or stand for our national anthem. I’m sorry, but don’t they even comprehend why we honor our ‘flag’. We’re not honoring the flag, but what it symbolizes. When we trash it, we trash the sacrifices of millions of men and women who disrupted their lives, their futures, and many of them giving all, just so some jerk who has never registered to vote can be famous.
Unfortunately, the sacrifice of those brave men and women are what guarantees the truly disgusting creeps of this country the freedom to denigrate and be their nasty selves.
Freedom is a beautiful thing.
It must always be allowed to flourish.
