At most programs, we say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing God Bless America. They all sing it with such gusto. As I look around many of the nursing home dining areas where we do the programs, the walls are often bare, the rooms look institutionalized and there is a lack of color.
Today, I just pictured a room filled with red, white and blue flags…each resident holding one. I guess we would need about 50 little flags. I think that the color and the spirit of patriotism would put a smile on the faces of the residents.
I would collect them and use the same 50 flags for the next facility and the next and the next………anybody want to help out with that donation?
