Letter: Flag issues

David Parrish writes:
I don't think that this issue is a question of politics. It is an issue of respect and understanding what civics taught about respecting the flag. If it happened in the past and the question was not asked if it is appropriate, then it is about not knowing the difference.

Are there other ways to honor the legacy of those citizens that have contributed to this area without usurping the legitimate authority of the President of the United States and the Governor of the State to make that decision to honor? I have heard of proclamations. I am sure other available options are there as well.
