Default Good Morning.

Good morning from a very chilly Pittsburgh, PA. Back to work after a couple of days off. My continued prayers for our servicemen and women, our country and our allies.

Good morning cruisers.


I am your Flag

I am the symbol of the living America, the badge of its greatness, the emblem of its destiny.

I am faith. It is I who keep men mindful of their priceless heritage, life, liberty, and the right to pursue happiness.

I am hope. I represent the land of promise wherein, already, man's loftiest dreams have approached closer to realization than ever before on this earth.

I am life. Each strand and fiber of my being is a memorial, dedicated to the sacrifices of all those strong men and steadfast women who have lived and died in the nation's service, that it might live forever.

I am tolerance. So long as I shall wave, all people under my protection may freely worship, think, write and speak, undaunted by the shadow of fear.

I am justice, tempered with mercy. For I am friend to the oppressed and downtrodden of every land.

I am a sign of the future. I wave over schools throughout the nation and in them the nation's future is molded.

I am the flag of the United States... the last... the best hope for peace on earth.

Our flag has remained up since the atrocity. Usually it is out for every holiday, but I will keep it out permanently from now on.

Mornin' to all from beautiful windy and sunny Lawn Guyland. I have had my flag out, also, 24 hours a day since the tragedy. I do not consider it "disrespectful" to display a symbol of our pride of country in the dark as well as day. I am an American 24 hours day and night. I disagree with whoever made up the rules on flagwaving. I guess there must have been a reason. Anyone else feel the way I do?
Have an exceptional day today whether or not you are working............
Mary

I don't know who decided all the flag rules but I am careful to abide by them. The only one that I have trouble with, is the luminating the flag at night. Our outside lights are flood lights and I wont disturbe my neighbors by keeping these on all night. My neighbor has an ordinary 100 watt bulb outside on the side of his house. It lights up our flag. They moved this weekend, so I guess it will have to be in the dark, but at least it flies, right alongside John's 1st Cavalry flag.

I did read that a personal flag can be displayed 24 hrs and not luminated-- so that what were doing here too. Still have a power shortage---
Have a great day everyone-- cooler here in San Jose CA but hopefully it will warm up soon.
Be good - smile and book a cruise
Cheers

Good Morning Cruisemates! My first day back and heading to work. Will likely be watching alot of CNN in the bar.
Plus I'll be reading my "tape delayed" virtual cruise to see if I had any fun.

Regards,
Kuki
