Flag Day 2019

Today is Flag Day.

History, from the National Flag Day Foundation:

The “Stars and Stripes”, the official National symbol of the United States of America was authorized by congress on that Saturday of June 14, 1777 in the fifth item of the days agenda. The entry in the journal of the Continental Congress 1774-1789 Vol. Vlll 1777 reads “Resolved that the flag of the thirteen United States be Thirteen stripes alternate red and white: that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”

In Waubeka, Wisconsin, in 1885 Bernard John Cigrand a nineteen year old school teacher in a one room school placed a 10” 38 star flag in an inkwell and had his students write essays on what the flag meant to them. He called June 14th the flag’s birthday. Stony Hill School is now a historical site. From that day on Bernard J. Cigrand dedicated himself to inspire not only his students but also all Americans in the real meaning and majesty of our flag.
Celebrate the symbol of our great nation!

Fly the American Flag!


Sarah Sanders Leaving White House

Sarah Sanders has done a remarkable job as White House press secretary.

No other WH press secretary has dealt with the sort of hostility from the media that Sarah has.

She's an extremely talented, strong woman.

She'll be missed.
