Fly American flag next week

Fond memories of the late Ralph Stewart of Rancho Bernardo recur every year to me at this time. For those that don’t know, Stewart was very instrumental in reviving God Bless America Week in all of San Diego and our nation. He was honored, not too long before he died in 2006, by the San Diego City Council for his efforts.

It was the wish of this gentle man to have the week of Thanksgiving be designated for this celebration.  The intent was simple, to honor our country and those who fought, and continue to fight for our freedom. It was his wish for everyone to fly their American flags to show their patriotism. So please fly your star spangled banner the week of Thanksgiving in his honor and to honor our great country and its heroes. One day perhaps, this week will be a national holiday as Stewart wished. If anyone can help me pursue his dream please let me know at Shmrok5@hotmail.com. God Bless America!
