I have been amazed at the controversy over who wears a flag pin. Obama has not worn one because he said in April that "it has become a substitute for true patriotism." But, on the evening of his acceptance of the Democratic nomination for president, there he was with a rectangular pin symbolizing patriotism. Jewelry really means much more than adornment! It symbolizes support for a cause, political statements, charity, etc. Everyone should wear pins all the time! I challenge America to wear a pin of your choice, whether it costs $2 or $2000. Jewelry is more than just a accessory!
