Flag Day

Today is June 14th, Flag Day. You can read about Flag Day and its history here. Flag Day was first observed in the 1877, I found one site that said 1885 was the first Flag Day, it is basically a day to celebrate and show respect for our flag. My daughter who was born on Flag Day informed me this morning that she does not think anyone really celebrates flag day. She thought this was sad. It is kind of sad. I tried to find any sort of Flag Day special events in our area, none to be found. At least none that were widely publicized.
