So I'm not sure the significance of this sign, which I uncovered in Nags Head, NC, a few months back.
I strongly believe that being an American means that I have certain responsibilities. One, to be open to others. Two, to suspend judgment until I understand the situation. Three, to represent my country in the best way I know how...by trying to communicate with my fellow human beings.
We're all together on this crazy, mixed-up planet we call Mother Earth. I don't know if the homeowner on NC 12 South meant to send the message that the sign and the tattered flag imply, or at least the feeling I've inferred. I'm sure there's another story, which explains the significance of both.
I'd like to wish this person, and all of you, the best of weekends as we celebrate America's 234th birthday.
Hope you have a happy 4th!
