She is beautiful

Tonight I couldn’t stop staring at how beautiful she is. I’m proud of her. The past year was particularly hard, but in her I see growth and change. I see a country that is healing. I believe you can proudly fly this flag and admit we have improvements yet to make. You can also fly this flag and be proud of the brave who have defended her. It’s not one way or the other. That’s the thing about her – she flies for all of us and she flies a little prouder when we try a little harder to stay united. When I look at her, I see sacrifice and heartbreak but I also see a better tomorrow, and wasn’t that what the sacrifice was for? I hope we don’t forget that. Ever.
She is beautiful.
