When it comes to this large American flag painting, following like sheep is not be a bad thing. It’s a popular idiom but usually not one you want to be accused of doing. In fact, the negative connotation of not thinking for yourself and just doing what others do is often considered an insult. I believe we should think for ourselves and not be swayed by others or general public opinion. After all, it’s been proven that diversity of thought and ideas can lead to bigger and better things. But maybe the sheep were on to something. Maybe some things should not be over thought or dissected for analysis. Over thinking something can also lead to problems. It can lead to stagnation and lack of taking action. But if you’ve ever observed a pack of sheep they stick together like glue. So much that it takes horses and often dogs to get them to move and go to their destination. The other reason they stay so close together is for protection. Those who prey on sheep for food will not attack the herd. Instead they wait for an outlier that is away from the pack and alone. That’s when a sheep is most vulnerable. So maybe those sheep aren’t so dumb after all.
Large American Flag Painting
Now what does this have to do with the American flag or this large patriotic painting. Well, maybe we should recognize that we aren’t always acting alone. That sometimes we are better acting together, as a country. As citizens that are united for one cause. To be free from government control and to live in a country where we are free to choose who and what we want to be. Maybe we should see an American flag, recognize all that it stands for and just follow it. And if someone wants to criticize us for it we will have the perfect reply. Bahhhh.
