Foxboro High School in Massachusetts cut 18-year-old Morgan Truax's yearbook photo because she used an American flag backdrop, her mother said last week on Facebook. According to the mom, the school claimed the position of the flag made it look as if Morgan was standing on it, but the mom says Truax was using the backdrop to show her pride for America. "They won't allow the picture in the yearbook because it's the American flag," mom Lisa Truax said. "We are American! We live in America! OMG what is this country coming to? Please share." Which party here will prove that they love America more by stalwartly defending a piece of cloth?
"The photo showed the United States flag hanging on a wall with the lower portion lying on the floor and the student standing on the flag,” the school said in a statement to Fox 25. “We do not view standing on the U.S. Flag as respectful or appropriate."
The school also wouldn't accept a cropped version of Morgan's photo for some reason, probably because they're petitioning the government to add her to the No-Fly List. The truth will remain a mystery until the full version of the picture is revealed.
Who is disrespecting the flag? Who is the true patriot? How long can people maintain their interest? Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion.
