Why is it people throw their body and soul behind these things? I’ve never understood symbols. People attach meaning to them when there is no meaning… it’s just some artwork on a cloth. Yet somehow it gets interpreted as an excuse for stabbing someone else in the ribs.
Check out the recent riots in Belfast that went on for weeks, because they decided to only fly the Union flag over the town hall on certain days of the week. Think how petty that is. Violence, death, destruction over a meaningless symbol. People need to grow up!
