Important to respect flag
To the editor:
In reference to Sheriff Gregg Morton’s Veterans Day speech: It was uplifting in such sad times. Also, I want people to know why it is important to respect the flag. The flag is our freedom, respect, dignity, strength and tranquility.
Remember next time you see a veteran, law enforcement personnel, firefighter, or active duty soldier: stop and give them the respect you would give the flag. Thank them and be glad you live in Fairfield, too, and have great leaders at the helm. To earn respect, you have to give respect.
