Read full description of the books The Fragile Flag:
my memories of this story has faded gently, like a quilt after many washings, but I still remember the surge of conscientious patriotism it evoked. of course she should walk to DC with a flag whose very condition symbolized the country! of course she'll defeat those arrayed against her, all with peace! U-S-A! U-S-A!
i don't recall the flag being magical, just that it inspired through visions...which could be called magical...I guess. if only there really was a magical flag hanging in the Oval Office that reminded leaders of their duty....
