A beautiful show of homage!he's apparently done this for 8 years:bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup:
The last couple Cardinals games I have been to I have had to ask at least one person what their reason was for not removing their hat for the National Anthem. And usually they are in their early 20's and wanted to give me lip, and told me to mind my own business. When I tell them that there are many, many better Americans than them that have given the Ultimate sacrifice for this great country and the least that they can do is remove their hat and put their hand over their heart. Then they seem to realize that it isn't that hard to pay just a little bit of respect to all those that have fallen.:agree:
people don't take as much pride in this country as they used to. For example; at the the bike rally I went to a couple of weeks ago there was a parade in the morning to kick things off,
My GF's dad is a vietnam vet, his truck is the first in the parade because of the flags in the back of his truck (stars and stripes, POW MIA, American Legion Riders) the Local PD put the truck right behind the escort. I'm a member of the American Legion Riders (ALR) so he and myself were two of the first bikes in the parade along with about 20-30 other ALR members.
In this parade, there were probably a few hundred spectators on the sides of the road along the way, my GF and her mom noticed about 2-5 people who actually put their hand over their heart or removed their hats as the flag passed. ???
i'm just sayin
