loving you all the days of forever
“37 years ago today, two protestors attempted to burn an American flag in the outfield of Dodger Stadium. A baseball player by the name of Rick Monday of the Chicago Cubs rushed over and grabbed the flag to thunderous cheers. The two protestors were arrested and Monday received a standing ovation from the LA crowd when he came to bat. He was later quoted saying, “If you’re going to burn the flag, don’t do it around me. I’ve been to too many veterans’ hospitals and seen too many broken bodies of guys who tried to protect it.”” - via Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children
