Words of Wisdom

Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

~ Francis Scott Key, The Star Spangled Banner

With something to think about . . .Each year Flag Day is celebrated with various shows of patriotism, whether it be parades or displays. By celebrating Flag Day, we're doing more than showing our respect to Old Glory, we are showing respect for those who have fought and died protecting the people and the country our flag represents. We are upholding the principles, the freedoms, and the laws that make our country a place where so many thrive; we are celebrating the unification of cultures that have come together so uniquely to make America great. So wave your flag proudly. It is a symbol of our unity.

Remember to take care of yourself.

Take a moment and be proud of the things you stand for -- your principles, your morals and your conduct.
