The flag rippled in the breeze outside the window. The inhabitants of the house had not put the flag there. They didn’t agree with what the flag stood for, but out of fear they let it fly.
The person who put the flag there was neither from next door nor from the street, nor even the next street.
The person who hung the flag lived three miles away and had no connection with the house, the street or the people. When the six-year-old asked his parents why it was outside his window, they didn’t know what to say.
