Before jumping into the celebrations of July 4th, also known as Independence Day , with your picnics BBQ’s and fireworks , I want to offer you a few fun facts about the American Flag. This might bore some of you, but humor me and keep reading,it will serve as a lesson in history if nothing else. I think it’s important to know and remember that for more than 200 years the American flag has been the symbol of our nation’s strength and unity and a prominent icon in our national history. The first flag was sewn by Betsy Ross In May 1776. The original flag was made up of 13 stripes alternating red and white and 13 white stars in a blue field representing a new constellation. Today the American flag has 13 horizontal stripes 7 red and 6 white representing the 13 colonies and 50 white stars on a field of blue representing each state of the Union. Although this is not new information for any of us, it is sometimes forgotten like an old friend until something brings it to our attention. July 4th is upon us, and I hope you will take the time to not only spend time with the ones you love but also reflect on the price of freedom you enjoy, paid for with the lives of many courageous American men and women. May God Bless America !🇺🇸
I hope you are planning to don your best red,white,and blue while celebrating our freedom!
