The U.S. Flag - Mixed Emotions About the Message It Sends, and a Cool New Version

My friend April Powers posted (over on LinkedIn) about her concern that the message sent by flying the U.S. flag on last week's Veteran's Day would be mistaken for support for the current president. She shared a link to Nasty Women Get Shit Done's alternatives, which I think are pretty awesome.

It reads: 
"In Our America: All People are Equal, Love Wins, Black Lives Matter, Immigrant & Refugees Are Welcome, Disabilities Are Respected, Women Are In Charge Of Their Bodies, People & Planet Are Valued Over Profit, Diversity Is Celebrated"

There's also a version in español:

And a Queer pride version, too:

Check them out here.

Thanks, April!

And yeah, I will feel better about the U.S. flag – about our country, actually – once Biden and Harris represent and lead us.

The light in me recognizes and acknowledges the light in you,
