It was certainly interesting and exciting in Flushing with all the celebrations for Chinese New Year. Isn’t it wonderful that people from all over the world can come to this great country and live the American Dream?
Wouldn’t it also be nice to see this same amount of energy put into the celebrations honoring America? How about flying the American flag on holidays? But then, do we really need a holiday to fly our flag? How about a Memorial Day parade in downtown Flushing? What about celebrating the Fourth of July?
Let’s all remember that freedoms are granted to people living here because the members of our armed forces fought and died to keep us free.
Here’s to a more patriotic Flushing. God bless America and all those who love her.
