Reconnecting With America

The American flag is a symbol of perseverance, heroism, corruption, or oppression. Different groups of Americans have tried to claim the flag as their own, brandishing it on hate speech or propaganda. We connect with the flag the only way we know how. We wear it and recognize its meaning, its binding ties to tradition and formality. Yet, we defy those connotations with our inability and unwillingness to conform to those traditional societal standards.
