I found this bag of Born and Baked in the USA Snack Cookies in my scrap book this weekend. Yes, I realize most people keep photos in their scrap book. I keep cookies. Don’t you judge me!
Hey, you remember the days after September 11th when strangers smiled at one another and hung their flag and kept a good thought for the families of those who were lost? How people started paying attention the news for once, and international relations became a common topic of conversation? How folks hugged their kids a little tighter, and children seemed to play a little nicer?
Then, remember the weeks after September 11th when flag manufacturers in China couldn’t keep up with our demand, and companies started washing their products in patriotism just to make them sell better?
Wow. Way to ruin the moment, Cookies.
