There was a wedding in the Salem Common this morning. The flag in the Common is still half-mast, and it got me to thinking; would you want to get married when the flag is half-mast?
I could see it from two ways.
1: It would be a reminder that something terrible or sad happened, somewhere in the world, that directly affected our nation in a major way. The day you were married would forever be the anniversary of the thing that made us lower the flag in the first place.
2: As bad as things are, your wedding would be a reminder that good things can still happen.
What do you think, faithful reader? Would you have your wedding in a venue where a flag was at half mast? Tell me why, or why not in the commons.
