The flag, the stars and stripes that represents this wonderful country. Every detail has a reason, every stitch has a story and every star has a name. To me it is just as important as the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Holy Bible. Over the decades it has changed to reflect changes in this country, however I have seen some pics on the net where someone has photoshopped the flag so it reflects a current event/problem. I have mixed feelings about this, but it made me think of something. How would you feel if someone altered a real flag so that one of the stripes was changed black or blue to reflect a fallen officer or yellow to show respect for the military? I'm torn the act would in some ways reflect the patriotism of the fallen, however that is why we fly the flags at half mast. So why alter the flag to symbolize a loss when the simple act of its position can do the same?
