Every year on the 3rd of July, Daxson takes 575 flags and puts them out in a nearby neighborhood.  His purpose is two-fold.  First, it’s a method of advertising…we tie a business card to each and every flag.  The second purpose is pure and simple: it’s patriotic. 

This year I took Joseph with me to deliver my share of the flags.  I wanted him to see patriotism in action.  It’s so easy to take for granted our freedom and liberties; so easy to forget how hard our forefathers worked to build this nation into the great country it is; so hard to find a tangible way to show the love we have for our country.  I may not be able to stand alongside our brave and noble soliders; I may not even be able to make it to any 4th of July parade; sometimes I barely know what’s going on in politics, but still, I have a duty as an American.  A duty to teach my children about our country…our freedoms…our rights…our history.  And it starts now.
