Weekend Snapshot: Durable and Enduring

Host unlimited photos at slide.com for FREE!

The US flag hangs at the back of the sanctuary at St. John's Episcopal Church in Waterbury. I was in the loft on Christmas Eve to film some of my daughter's choir when they sang. As I turned to leave that afternoon, I was struck by the weight of this old flag. Inside it seemed still and peaceful and ever so durable--or should I say enduring. I love the flag; it it I see home.

  4. I don't own a flag. But to see the Dutch flag gives me a sense of comfort. nonetheless, I can not say I love the straight bars and the organized look flags venerally have. They are somehow confining! Of all the worlds flags I like the Australian flag the best, because it looks like the night sky :-)

  17. People see so many personal things in a national flag. That's what it is - a symbol of unity between people and their dreams, their lives.

  18. I know that the thin nylon flags we get these days are supposed to be more weather-proof, but I love the old sturdy heavy ones too. The 'veterans' I call them LOL.

    Thank you for sharing this story! I loved it.
