The flag of the United States is not only a symbol of freedom. It is also a symbol of strength and resolve. After Hurricane Katrina struck the Mississippi Gulf Coast, the flag was up along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Below are some shots that I took in various Mississippi cities. We have shown strength and resolve and the rebuilding is at a frenetic pace now.

The flag, in the midst of the debris and smashed houses, was a bright spot of hope. And it remains a symbol of hope to us in Mississippi. It also a symbol of hope to millions of oppressed around the world. Long may she wave.
