Adz : The power of love manifested in a flag we named Kevin. Some wished for catastrophe, the media urged us to prepare for the worst storm ever. Kevin was supposed to be taken down, yet this was not to be. The power of our love (you know who you are) and our good intentions, manifested. Kevin said defiantly "LET'S DO THIS!" Florence fueled with hate and anger shrieked, "LOOK HOW BIG I AM! AREN'T YOU TERRIFIED?" Kevin laughed at her. He was born for this. Florence raged and howled for hours. Kevin laughed, he could feel no pain, He yelled, "IS THIS ALL YOU'VE GOT?" She threw everything she had at Kevin....and went from a cat 5 hurricane to a category zero storm. There were many witnesses who will always remember this with love in their hearts and smile whenever they see the American flag. Love wins.

Steve : It's like watching the USA under the Trump administration...

Gaia Miranda : Uhm no one notices that the US flag is supposed to be put away and taken down at night (unless lighting) and inclement weather? No one? SMH :/ Because no one knows is most likely the reason. The U.S. Flag Code addresses the rules for flying flags, rain or shine. It is specific on what to do in the case of rain. The United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, states: "The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement."

Depcom : That shredded flag represents what Donald Chump is doing to our country.

sadf asdf : Those three torn stripes are named Trump, Jared & Ivanka. Hopefully, the country will be rid of them all soon, blowing in the wind...
