To Honor or Not to Honor the American Flag

Timothy A. ClaryAmerican flags, across New York Bay from the Statue of Liberty, fly at half-mast at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey, on May 25, 2022, as a mark of respect for the victims of the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

COMMENTARY: What the flag signifies is altogether distinguishable from what transpires in culture. Culture is one thing, what the flag represents is quite another.
