Today is Flag Day. A day where we, in the USA honor our flag. Drive down any street in the country and you'll likely see a number of residents celebrating the flag today. But when I was younger, I used to think that they were flying the flag for me. Because Flag Day also happens to be my birthday. Yep, today I celebrate another year under my belt. Today I turn 39.
