It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words ... In this case the cliche seems to apply.
I took this picture earlier this morning in front of the Dougherty County School Administration building. The American flag was proudly waving - albeit upside down. After I took the shot I went inside the building and told the police officer in the lobby that they had a problem with the flag. He said it would be corrected immediately.
I watched from across the street as staff came out, lowered the flag and allowed it to drag across the ground as they turned it union side up. It's obvious some folks at the DCSS need some instruction in the proper handling and display of the American flag
As a side note: the flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress ...
Yep. That says it all.
