Flag at half staff a sign of the times

Success - Article sent! close

It is a disturbing sign of the times when I go to work and see the flag at half staff. It is becoming an all-too-often occurrence. Whether it is a loosening of our flag policy or just a lot more tragic and mournful events, it is a sad commentary when you think of it.

I hope that in the future I will proudly see our flag waving at full staff the majority of the time as it did in the past. I will then know that our country and the world are going in a more positive and peaceful direction.
