Patriotic Stop

Like yesterday's photo post, here is another perspective of the American flag on the AUSA Building for Memorial Day. I liked the juxtaposition of the stop sign with the American flag when I took this photo. The stop sign in this image is actually located across the street from the building.

The photograph represents how I would like people to treat federal holidays. Although these national observances give us days off from work, there is a higher purpose for day-long government and business closures. Holidays, such as Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day, offer us the opportunity to stop and reflect on the contributions and service of others who have helped shape our country and secure its future. We should all stop and reflect during these occasions on what it means to live in the United States and enjoy its many blessings.
