Flying the flag in the historic district
Here we have another restored house in Ocala's historic district near downtown. It is quite nice, and features the ubiquitous American flag. So many people think flying the flag indicates patriotism. Not necessarily. Anyone can fly a flag. Patriotism involves much more - summed up perhaps by commitment to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Often the biggest flag wavers lack that commitment.
