The flags were all waving at half-mast, honoring the death of the president. Yes, that president, THE president, president of OUR country. Not Lincoln … that is past history. The sitting president, the one that runs our country, the one that greets foreign dignitaries, the one that is in charge of our armed forces. He is dead!
He may be sitting behind his desk. He may be meeting with foreign dignitaries … he may be having dinner with his family. But the flags are still waving at half-mast. That has not changed. The president is dead … long live the president!
