Dana Point is very lucky to have such a great hometown parade and our pride is the Festival of Whales.
My Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) daughter and I took our flags to wave and had the shock of our lives. When the three platoons of Marines went by carrying the flag, some people were not standing in respect. Of course they were reminded more than once as the flag went by several times.
This has to be a reflection on the schools, and patriotism is a must whether you speak the language or not.
We all love America and are blessed with all the many benefits. Let’s model this devotion and fly our flag at every opportunity.
