In the Mailbag

Today we have this letter from Gordon Fowler in the San Juan Update mailbag…

Mullis Center Denounces Pledge of Allegiance to American Flag.

The Mullis Center Operations Committee has decided to discontinue the practice of honoring the American Flag at the majority of Senior Lunches, served twice weekly, at the Mullis Center.

Recognition of the American Flag is a common thread across America, especially at a time when our country is so politically divided. The flag is a symbol of our heritage, and an honor to those who have served, and given their lives for the freedoms we enjoy.

Evidently, disrespectful individuals live amongst us, and tear apart at the fabric that has been the strength and unity of our culture.

Also, please note that the American Flag has not been flown on the Mullis Center flagpole for the past several years.

Patriotism is not a bad word!

  2. This is tyranny of the minority! A few unhappy people try to destroy patriotism.

  3. I was sickened and saddened that a tradition I have been practicing since childhood has been assaulted! Shame on our Senior Center for allowing this to take place! Sheila Harley
