Happy Flag Day, America!

Flag Day in the United States, is the celebration of the birthday of the Stars and Stripes. Sadly, Flag Day doesn’t get the respect that Memorial Day or Independence Day gets, but it’s still important in my household. It is not an OFFICIAL federal holiday- no day off and no overtime pay. Thus, Americans may wonder what meaning does the day truly have?

The day of June 14th is historic because the Continental Congress passed an official resolution on June 14, 1777, “that the flag of the United States be 13 stripes alternate  red and white; that the Union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.

We have such respect for the American Flag at my house, and we always remember that my son Sam was badly injured and almost killed while defending her honor in Iraq. So even if you don’t get a holiday today, please wave your American Flag proudly, and be glad we can do so in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
