Our Flag Was Still There

They raised a flag at the construction site across the street. You are not supposed to leave the flag up in the rain or at night without it being lit but I don’t blame them for their ignorance. There’s a lot of that going around. And it is an inspiring sight to see.

It is childish to think of anything as big, old, and varied as the USA as purely good or purely evil. Some of the most courageous and most cowardly acts have unfolded beneath this flag. As hard as it is to believe sometimes, we have continued to move in the right direction, even when we have done it in spite of ourselves.

The traitors and liars who have hijacked one of our two main political parties will die off and take their anti-American views to the cemetery with them. Then America will reclaim our place as one of the leaders of a world that makes top priorities of human dignity, truth, freedom, and equal justice for all.

When that day comes we will have more reason than ever to venerate those who sacrificed their lives – on the battlefield and in the streets – for America.

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
