Tatum: Let the colors fly
Placeholder Image
I have two large flags I will be displaying this week. Pretty pieces of cloth, indeed, few things are more beautiful than the flag of this country, but the threads which form them and hold them together are threads which run through me, connect me and keep me somewhat centered. These are my father’s and grandfather’s funeral flags, the one draped in solemn embrace around the guest of honor’s casket at a military funeral.
