One nation, under God —divisible

Just a thought .... by Rick Kraft

Today, I stood at the base of the flagpole at Fort Sumter and helped carefully unfold the United States flag. I assisted the ranger as he hoisted it up the pole so it could fly proudly over the island and the harbor.

The flag that was taken down from the pole on April14, 1861 only had 33 stars. The one we raised today had 50. As I helped raise the flag I thought of the importance of the flag to our nation and what it represents.
