4th of July

The flag of my country

Today is the 4th of July.  The day we here in the United States celebrate our freedom, our independence.

The flag represents so much to me:  the history of our country, the beauty of our land, the hope that still lives in our people.  Just to name a few.

It brings to mind the masses that came through Ellis Island, wars, presidents, founding men and women of the first colonies, union struggles, women’s fight to vote and become equal, those oppressed who continue to wage the battle for equality… so much more.

Did you know the flag should never touch the ground?  And it should be illuminated if flown at night?  Flag etiquette and history can be found here at this site:  Flag of the United States.

We have a great country although not a perfect country.

I only know of one perfect country.
