Memorial Day I don't know if natives of other countries love their flag as many Americans love theirs, but the colors bring pride and cheer to my heart whenever I see one. These flags wave in my neighborhood.
I am ashamed to say that when I was young, I got embarrassed because tears would come to my momma's eyes whenever she beheld the flag in parades. I wish she were here to see that the same thing now happens to me. Forgive me, Momma, for such ignorance.
