Just curious... Would anybody be offended if I added a Canadian flag to the US one on my villa's lawn? I personally love both countries and love to see us as happy neighbours.

How about putting out some crosses to let God know we need him back in our lives. If you do not want one out don't put one. Then when this is over we could try to be nice to everyone as we are doing now everyday instead of being in a big hurry to go nowhere. God will get us through this if we ask for his forgiveness and his help. This is only my opinion for I am a sinner also because I was born into this world. Please think about it.

Default Christmas in March?

I've seen a few homes dec'd out in Christmas decorations. When I mentioned it to someone, they replied that some folks are trying to bring hope and comfort to those that are really stressed at this time. In my opinion, that's a nice thought on their part.

When is it the wrong time of the year to display an American flag?

I and maybe others suggested on Facebook to fly our flags to show that we are in this together. Do it if you can. Thanks

You are correct:
March 29

National Vietnam War Veterans Day is observed every year on March 29 and is a way to thank and honor our nation's Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.
It's harder to hate close up.

That always bothers me as well. I know that everyone that does this is well meaning, but I would like to see them buy flags with longer sticks.
