The Birth of Defiance by Dr. Zero...continuing our celebration of The American Flag

Click the link provided for a beautiful perspective on Old Glory, entitled, The Birth of Defiance, written by Dr. Zero. He weaves words into insight, stirring something magical, engaging and wonderful... everytime.

It's Flag Day - Fly The Flag!

Flag day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777. Flag day was established by an Act of Congress in August of 1949.

My flagpole bracket has been broken for a while, and I have been disappointed because I have been unable to fix it. So I offered my flag to my next door neighbor until such a time as I can once again see Old Glory waving out in front of my own home. I'm going to go and put some small flags out as a concession. Meanwhile, I can see my flag flying at my neighbor's house through my bedroom window. That'll have to do for the moment. I hope wherever you are, you will be flying the Star Spangled Banner today.

"Oh long may it wave, o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
