Life, liberty, justice; frequently these words are scattered throughout our national political bandwidth. These terms represent the deeply rooted feelings of excellence and pride each patriotic American holds as tenets to the very nature of citizenship. One of the most noted representations of this well-deserved attitude of patriotism is our American flag. As CCRWC members, it is our responsibility to serve as shining examples for others.
