The United States Flag is a symbol of our nation and a lot of people died defending it. When the flag is displayed, it should be done so in the proper way. As I have walked around Alpena the political candidates are opening offices here getting ready for the November elections. These people want to represent us, My question is: what does it say about the candidate when the flag they are standing in front of is not displayed properly? I have seen at least 2 flags improperly displayed here in Alpena. Makes you think if this symbol of our great nation is not important enough to show correctly what do they think is?
