The flag was gleaming. Shimmering. Glowing.
The American flag lapel pin on Barack Obama’s chest shined today as it caught the sunlight.
It was a great day for that flag.
Every four years in this country when an elected leader is peacefully sworn-in, it is a great day.
Some will remember that Obama was not quick to wear that pin during the campaign, and it stirred all kinds of controversy.
Well, now that controversy is over, because the election is over.
Barack Obama is the American President, and it his job for at least the next four years to keep that flag shining bright.
