I was born in the USA, but moved to Canada with my family 41 years ago. I am still patriotic and I love the USA! When I see the American flag, it reminds me of being in elementary school and placing my hand over my heart every morning and reciting the pledge of allegiance along with all of my classmates, and this is a very dear memory to me. The sight of the American flag gives me feelings of pride, loyalty, and patriotism. I think the American flag is the most beautiful flag in the world! As someone else here answered, I also think of apple pie! I could use a piece of apple pie right about now! Ha!
