Have You Ever Seen A Flag Burning?
Advertisements [?]
I am 58 years old. I saw protests against the war in Viet Nam, I served in that war. I was gassed once at an anti war rally after I got out and I've visited many of the country's cities over some politically turbulent times. Not once in my life have I ever seen a flag burned. I do not know that anyone I've ever spoken to has mentioned ever seeing one burned. Have you ever seen one burned?

How common is this horrible insult to the nation, this flag burning?
