I hope your flag is already flying today — sun’s up in almost all the U.S.
Fly the U.S. flag today for the holiday for the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. The holiday is celebrated on the third Monday in January.
Today also celebrates the 2nd inauguration of President Barack Hussein Obama, the 57th inauguration of a president.
