Amendment needed to stop flag burning

Since the first shots were fired in both Concord and Lexington, Massachusetts, in April 19, 1775, marking the start of the American Revolutionary war, many men, women and even children have died in all wars defending and preserving Old Glory, the United States Constitution and the American way of life.

It makes my blood boil when I see people desecrating our beautiful national flag.

I feel we need a flag burning amendment added to the U.S. Constitution. This amendment would require a very large fine, possibly prison, for those people who commit such a heinous act.

If you feel the same way as I do, please call, write or email your congressman demanding a flag burning amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

On your travels today, if you see a military veteran, stop and thank them for their service to our great nation.

God bless America and may Old Glory wave forever.
