Put American flag back where it belongs

July 5, 2018

Yesterday I was driving in Lewes following a local fire truck. To my surprise and dismay, it was flying a "blue lives matter" flag.

I believe, along with most, that blue lives do matter, as do black lives, white lives, yellow and purple lives. In fact all lives matter, and certainly a public entity charged with saving those lives should believe the same. The Lewes Fire Department should be ashamed of flying a divisive banner like that.

Put the American flag back where it belongs, and long may it wave for all.
