Missing Monarch the Bear

I was paying attention to the speaker. I really was.

After all, it was Sixth Grade Orientation at our new middle school. And the principal gave an engaging, and very funny, presentation.

But I found my attention drawn repeatedly over to side of the stage. Stage left, to be precise. And what was it that was holding my interest?

The flag.

The state flag. Or, should I say, the commonwealth flag. For Pennsylvania is one of four states to self-designate as a commonwealth.

It is a lovely flag. One that displays a great deal of symbolism.

It just doesn’t feel like our flag yet…

    Hopefully, as time goes on, you’ll grow comfortable with the symbol of the Commonwealth. Until then, Monarch the Bear says “Hello,” and he misses you. And I’m with Monarch.

    It will. You know it will. Just give it time. I bet you will learn to love it!
