The Story of the Little Paper Flag
Between the pages of my Bible is a small homemade paper flag. It only has five stripes, three red and two white, and just ten blue stars; and it is crudely colored with crayons. It is on a paper "staff" that is secured with tape. It is a very inaccurate and childish representation of our glorious flag. But to me, it is perfect.
I treasure this small, homemade flag because of what was written on the back of it by my mom. It says, "In memory of September 11, 2001, and our beloved flag." She added the date, Saturday, Sept. 22. It then goes on to tell the story of this little flag.
