Celebrating the Stars and Stripes


“The Stars and Stripes,” of course, refers to the American Flag – something VERY dear to my own heart, and probably to yours as well, if you are American.

Primarily, we think of our country’s founding today and what it means to us:  how we love the USA for the freedoms, benefits, and diversity we have in this country – a conglomeration of many countries, customs, and traditions wrapped into our flag.  We proudly display Old Glory and may even wear red, white, and blue today.  We celebrate with hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, and many other goodies unique to each family.  Then the day concludes with fireworks, declaring to the skies our pleasure of being American.

We cannot help but remember our military which defends our freedoms and way of life.  They ALL are STARS and bear the STRIPES of their efforts on our behalf.  We gratefully praise our military daily, but especially on a national holiday such as this.
