I have just returned from a five-day visit to my grandchildren in Maine.

During the visit, we walked or drove through a number of residential neighborhoods in Portland, South Portland, Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough.

I observed a number of Black Lives Matter signs and gay pride flags. However, I also noted that there were almost no American flags.

I might suggest that your citizens should feel compelled to fly the American flag, since it is their only guarantee that they have the freedom to express their opinions.
