Passing out these small flags during the Memorial Day parade is a favorite activity of the day.  I like to imagine that each flag is a remembrance, honoring a veteran for their selfless courage and sacrafice.  There could never be enough of these flags or parades or remembrances, even so it is my honor and privilege to share theses flags today and to remember our veterans.

Thank you!

Katjana Ballantyne, Alderman, Ward 7 Somerville
