Flag Day


When : Always June 14th

Flag Day, is a day for all Americans to celebrate and show respect for our flag, its designers and makers. Our flag is representative of our independence and our unity as a nation.....one nation, under God, indivisible. Our flag has a proud and glorious history. It was at the lead of every battle fought by Americans. Many people have died protecting it. It even stands proudly on the surface of the moon.

As Americans, we have every right to be proud of our culture, our nation, and our flag. So raise the flag today and every day with pride!

I have a vivid memory for Flag day. On Flag day when I was 8 years old we were driving around and was broadsided by a car driven by a drunk. I got a ride in an ambulance and stitches on my face where there is still a scar from it.

Wouldn't it be ironic if the drunk was distracted by a flag waving that wasn't normally there.

Yes it would, EG...note to self - don't wave your flag at oncoming traffic.

unc, that would tend to remind you of the holiday for sure...ouch.

I agree Gus, bad memory.

Think of puppies instead.

Oh my goodness, it is not normal to work that many hours in one day. I fell into bed and was comatose shortly thereafter. Thankfully, I'm off today, although my to do list at home is quickly piling up, but at least here I can sit down whenever I want.
