and replaced it with The Betsy Ross Flag . Because to many our current flag was symbol of hubris, incompetence, and cruelty. Simply put we needed to get back to our foundations and rebrand ourselves.
Today we took a step in that direction. Today an African American man was sworn in as President of the United States of America in a former slave market.
Read into that what you will but to me its a step in the right direction towards rebuilding our image and gives us the opportunity to heal wounds both new and old.
Love Obama or hate him he's not an extension of the previous administration and he won't authorize the torture of anyone. That gives me some cause for hope.
Today the Stars and Stripes fly again. Don't make me regret it President Obama.
