    dotsflags FLAGS flags ?dots

    Lots of tiny little flags for us to wave in the bright and gormless parade and great big flags that make us feel so brave, lots of flags to pledge allegiance to and lots of flags to divide us through. Lots of painted, printed cloth that we can be so very proud of, and not one flag of unity, not one flag of I, we, me and you.

      Flags embody oneness,bind people to a common will,goal or region.
    A unity is sought that encompasses all race.
    Several attempts at reminding us of our oneness loom to mind the colors of football-not a call really but a roaring jubilant pose. The victor's flag-waving arms by winners side and loser side. Something to ease tension.
    Your piece should be read at gatherings,schools even little kids should be thought because children dont really discriminate,they just want a playmate - teddy,doll,hispanic,orient,indian,black kids any would do,such is their lives.
    So a flag with 4 colors green,brown,blue and white-meaning vegetation,sand,water,and the sky above us all.so no one will feel left out -desert arab region,tropics,poles etc. But first we writers we unite black and white-ink to paper. We write to correct,reform, and some times instruct a change in orientation of our reading public! Sounds like a movement. Every one in their locale making words evocative to educe the right behavioral response. The flag of humanity!
    I ramble! Sorry pm me what you feel. It started here.

    The idea of being divided by flags yet ironically united beneath them is something to think about. It would be one amazing day on earth if we all peacefully went under the same flag. I don't know that I'd like it though. It idea of global unity is nice in theory, but we humans are destructive by nature. If we didn't have someone else to destroy, what on earth would we do with our time?

    Great piece. It got me thinking..
