Memorial Day Flag Hanging-Two Elder Ladies in Old Gahanna- Ohio Remind us the importance thereof

A couple of weeks back I stopped in the middle of the street to help one of my elders in need!

     I was headed out to another meeting. Always in a rush to be on time. Was taken my normal shortcut through the neighborhood; when I stopped at the stop sign to make that right hand turn.

      In the corner of my eye towards my left, I saw these precious two elder ladies struggling with this flag pole while trying to put up the USA flag for Memorial Day. So naturally I did what I was supposed to do; I put the car in park and got out to help. Oh as you can tell, not before I had already snapped the photo!

    After I had wiped the tears from my eyes; this huge smile was  on my face. This touching scene reminded me of who was here before me; my elders. Who am I to serve; my elders. Who paved the way for me; my elders.

  The tallest of the two said, “Well, we can’t figure out why after 50 years of putting up this flag, on this very pole; why it won’t work today”. So I helped my elder from the stepping stool, down, and began to investigate why the pole would not stay up. Ah,, there’s the problem; the pins were missing.  I told them I would see about getting some pins for them at the local hardware store.  But they beat me to it. 

        A couple of days went pass; I had not ventured to the store yet. But there was no need. They figured a way to get it up before I could get to the store.  The next time I turned the corner at that stop sign-  The Flag was up and flying in her full glory!  

        Thank you my darling elders for teaching us one hand on top of the other; together we stand to the traditions of our land.
