Awakenings: Happy 4th of July   

The American flag: Wave it proudly!   

An icon of American freedom, a symbol of liberty, a motif referring to the United States, a banner for independence––

all symbolize America and the principles upon which she stands. Small flags are displayed on holidays, i.e., Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Presidents’ Day, Flag Day, and of course, on today’s special day, Independence Day. American flags also proudly displayed beside war memorials and next to the graves of U.S. war veterans. They are flown at public buildings and it is not uncommon to find full-size flags flying in the yards of private homes. 

Sharla Shults‘s insight:

We live in America, we rejoice in America’s freedoms, and today we celebrate America’s independence!

  4. Happy Independence Day to you too.

    For close to a century America has been a beacon of freedom and hope to the rest of the world. Who would play this role going forward?

  6. Just keep in mind that we continue to have these freedoms because of our military.
