The Clustered Stars of Flag Day

This is a postcard from my "Cyber Postcard Collection." I adore the graceful composition of this lovely piece.
I was born on Flag Day. For years and years I believed flags were flown on Flag Day in celebration of my birth. (grin) As a child I was disappointed when I learned the truth. But as adult, I don't mind so much, that really--flags are flown on this day to honor our country's Flag.
Our Flag has stood for liberty and the pursuit of happiness for over 200 years! Compared to many countries America is quite youthful. I hope and pray our flag will stand and fly for hundreds of years to come. I pray that the courage, bravery, faith, truth and sacrifice this country was built upon will not falter.

that's so sweet! it reminds me of how my younger daughter when she was learning to talk used to point at every banner plane (we live at the beach) and say, "that spells Meg". Happy birthday!
