I commend Starbucks for supporting Pride Month with LGBT flags displayed in their stores, because equality is an important issue for them, as it is with me. Starbucks must also display the Stars and Stripes to represent every American if it truly supports equality.I didn’t carry a LGBT flag, or a Black Lives Matter flag, or a Blue Lives Matter flag on a battlefield in Vietnam. I carried the Stars and Stripes. We need to come together to make democracy work. We won’t survive splintered into special interest groups, that’s why we need to rally under one flag.
