Capture the Flag  is a fun kid’s game. I’ve also played it with 20 men on opposing teams in the Canadian woods. If it were only a game, that’d be great. Regrettably it reflects life in the so-called real world.  Winning trumps resolution.

Lets break it down.

The flags’ cotton is likely grown in different fields. The dyes may come from different sources. The fabric was probably purchased at different places.

Lets break it down further.

Same earth, air, water, moon and sun.

At what point does it become theirs and ours, them and us, you and me?
