The whole inspiration of our life as a nation flows out from the waving folds of this banner. ~Author Unknown
On this day in 1777, the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution to adopt a United States flag. Although the flag has seen alterations over the years since its conception, it has always served as a constant reminder that our great nation is a free nation and will continue to be a source of pride as our country moves forward.
I hope we all take a few moments to reflect on this great nation and the men and women who risk their lives to ensure the flag continues to fly as a symbol of freedom and democracy.
