Honor is holding oneself accountable.
Those who understand this, honor the Flag Code, keeping its laws out of respect for the American flag. Those who don’t understand this, dishonor the American flag.
Many believe that Respect for the American flag is a new discussion, but that is hardly the case. In fact, this was a topic in June of 1923 when the United States Flag Code was approved by the National Flag Conference. James J. Davis, Secretary of Labor under Warren Harding, said that “disrespect for the flag” was one of the “first steps” toward communist revolution.
All we have to maintain respect for one of the greatest symbols of our great nation is the honor of the U.S. citizens. When honor wanes, so does our country. It’s that important.
