One Day Pride?
What 's up with Canadians and how we show pride (or don't) in our country? Why do most of us scramble to find our flag, iron it, and then hastily place it outside JUST for Canada Day, only to take it down the next day and discard it on the basement floor?
This would never and just doesn't happen in the United States. When I went to Lake Placid, I was struck by the observation that every single cottage had a flag on the lawn, the dock and on every boat! Most homes had flags and I know each teacher's desk has one as well as in each classroom.
Here, you will probably see more flags on boats in cottage country than anywhere else. Hardly any classrooms have them anywhere. We don't even know where to tell the children to face while we sing our national anthem each morning! It really seems ridiculous to me. Why are we so hesitant to display our pride and allegiance?
We need to take more cues from our American neighbours to the south!
God Bless America.
