If I were to burn a flag it would be with tears in my eyes as I have every 4th of July in church. I can not sing patriotic songs because I get choked up.
For me to burn the US flag would mean that I have no hope left; only dreams and memories. It is getting close to that point. It would be with tears in my eyes and at that point I would fight to get it back, yes I would take up arms, leave US soil - never to return or end my life.
