"If anyone, then, asks me the meaning of our flag,

I say to him - it means just what Concord and Lexington meant; what Bunker Hill meant; which was, in short, the rising up of a valiant young people against an old tyranny to establish the most momentous doctrine that the world had ever known - the right of men to their own selves and to their liberties."
~Henry Ward Beecher

Today is Flag Day.

Many associate the American flag with government.
I personally associate the American flag with our country and her people.
The struggles and triumphs of the American spirit.

We are not perfect. But then again was there ever a country that was?

We are a country deeply loved by some all over the world and quite frankly deeply hated by some all over the world.

Never take for granted this great land of ours. There are those who want to divide us and see us fall, both domestic and abroad.
But we ALL must stand strong. Together. United.

Happy Flag Day, my fellow Americans.

Yes, it is Flag Day. It is all about the people who decided to be a country on their own and to make a symbol for the entire world to see that would say, "Look at this! This is US..we are united as one people even though we live in different parts. Mess with one of us and you have to deal with all of us." We have never been perfect but at our worst we still have been the greatest country in the world and we will continue to be so! Happy Flag Day, CK!!
