I wonder what others see when they see a neatly folded American flag that had been draped over a fallen military person or veteran’s casket?

All my family will see, since the University of Maine at Farmington’s outrageous disregard of the American flag and all the families who agonize daily over their lost loved ones, is a filthy footprint, ground deeply into the fibers of our faith and patriotism by the administration of a small town college who could have prevented such a sad event by simply explaining to the student and obviously uninformed professor, what even a first-grade student would have told them – that stepping on the flag wasn’t right.

So, I guess that higher education doesn’t equal a first-grade education.

I say, money poorly spent.
