A Swimwear Tribute to the Red, White and Blue
By ELLEN LEWIS
Patriotism: It’s a loaded word now a day in the USA. And that’s unfortunate. Nonetheless, I have absolutely no doubt that when push comes to shove, Americans are all in. We honor our troops, respect the sacrifices and pay homage to their victories. This weekend we will celebrate a national holiday specifically named for those lost in service, Memorial Day. For our citizens, it’s the official beginning of summer and will be commemorated with parades, barbecues, boats, beaches and other family events. Sometimes, in the midst of our tendency for hype, we lose sight of purpose in our quest for pleasure. But have no doubt; we are a country of patriots. We are loyal to the Red, White and Blue. So, as we officially open our beaches and pools for the season, what better way to pay allegiance than to don the colors of our flag in our swimwear?
