Disrespect for the American flag has grown immensely in the past several years. A video recently surfaced of a young child riding through town on a scooter with his mother on her bike.
They both came to a stop as the child ripped an American flag out of the ground and threw it down. The mother stood, watched, and waited for her son to finish.
Typically when a mother is to witness her child do something wrong, she is to intervene, tell the child no.
Instead she passively stood and watched as if this was a normal occurrence for the pair. As if she had taught him to uproot American flags wherever they can be found.
Worst of all, this flag belongs to someone else. Regardless of whether or not he mother agrees with its symbolism, she is condoning vandalism in her child.
