A salute to a man for a job well done.
Many of us may not seem very patriotic with all of our complaints against government and so on and so forth. But, the flag means very much to us. Those of us who have fought in our wars and seen our brothers in arms fall, those of us that have served this country here at home, and those of us that have supported the efforts of those that have served hold our flag high and proud.
To see our flag treated with any kind of disrespect is heartbreaking and cause for alarm to many of us. And even if we disagree with our political situation at the moment, we still believe in America the Country and her people. Even if you do not support our involvement in military actions, most support our troops. Many men have died under color of our flag and our flag means much to them and their families.
It is sad to see our flag burning in some foreign land on the television news. It is sad to see our flag on the ground beneath the feet of protest marchers here at home. But it is a warm and welcome site to see our flag honored when nobody is watching by a man that never thought anyone would know. They say you can measure the integrity of a man by his acts when nobody is watching.
A salute in respect for this Garbage Man . . .
