Leader ignored flag etiquette

While attending the Fourth of July parade, I witnessed something that was disturbing to me. (Auburn Mayor) Bridget Powers, who is running for re-election to the City Council, was tossing 3-by-5-inch flags from the car she was riding in onto the ground. Does she not know flag etiquette: the flag is not to touch the ground? It was as if she has no respect for our flag, and what it stands for or the sacrifices that have been made over the last 234 years to keep us free. So many men and women have made great sacrifices, “some gave some, some gave all,” and will continue to give to keep us free and that Grand Ole Flag waving freely. God bless the U.S.A., land that I love. SUSIE HALL-PUTIRI, Meadow Vista
