****•••••••••••••••••*•••••••••••••••••§••••••••• "INK in my VEINS" ••'••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••*••••••••••••*•** This is Memorial day. A beautiful May day, pleasantly cool and warmth mixed into a dreamy day. We are not long returned from Memorial day services and still ringing in my ears is the address of the day. A reminder to us to take thought of the sacrifice these our dead made for us that we may enjoy the freedoms we have. Not to take these freedoms for granted put to preserve them, work to protect them as our thank you for those whose life was cut off protecting us. The echo of the bugle sound "Taps" still wafts about us sad and haunting, yet giving comfort for "God is Nigh." Let Us believe and take up our tasks with renewed energy. As tht color guard made it* presentation this morn- mg my heart swallad with prido at tht sight of "Old Glory" and I knew again that our flag is spacial btcauso it is ours. Wo holp to fashion ovary fold and ovary fold tails what kind of citiions wo are, Flag day, celebrated annually on June 14, is the anniversary of the day on which the Continental Congress, meeting in Philadelphia, adopted the Stars and Stripes as the national flag of the United States in 1777. A committee appointed to design the new flag reported that the colors chosen were symbolic. The blue field was taken from the edge of the Covenanters Banner of Scotland signifying the American covenant against oppression. The red stripes meant daring and the white stripes purity. The original thirteen states wore represented by thirteen white stars on a blue field, the circle of the stars signifying eternity and the stars a new constellation rising in the West. There was sporadic recognition of June 14th as Flag day in public schools and buildings until Mrs. Elizabeth Duane Gillespie, a direct descendant of Benjamin Franklin and president of the Colonial Dames of Pennsylvania, offered a resolution that the flag be displayed by citizens at home as well as at places of business and public offices in 1893. Today schools and patriotic organizations hold appropriate services with the salute to the flag beginning all programs. In a memorable speech on Flag day, 1917, just after we had entered World War 1, President Woodrow Wilson said of the Stars and Stripes: "From its birth until now it has witnessed a great history, has floated on high the symbol of great events, of a great plan of life worked out by a great people." Americans are disposed to take the Stars and Stripes for granted when they see it in their daily routine at home. But there is a deep emotional response in the heart of every American traveler when he is abroad and sees Old Glory floating over the American embassy in the great cities of Europe. It's forever a bit of our own native land. I experienced this feeling several times during my 1950 trip to Europe. Europe was so war-torn still, scars of war everywhere, and at times we were homesick. Then just to see our flag waving in the breeze, comforted us that our America existed and we were reminded of how special our American way of life is. In spite of all the gripes we may have and impatience at how slow the wheels of democracy grind, still there is no other country like our America. Many times we wondered why we left it but when we were homeward bound and first sighted the Statue of Liberty we appreciated America that much more. Long may Old Glory wave over the land of the brave and the free. . Our flag has no other character than that which we give it from generation to generation. The choice is ours. The flag floats in majestic silence above those that execute those choices in peace times or war. And yet though silent, speaks to us of the past, of- men and women who went before us and of the records they wrote upon it. We celebrate the day of its birth, and from its birth until today it has witnessed a great history, has floated over good times and bad, a great plan of life worked out by a great people as President Woodrow Wilson said in 1917. Long may our flag wave. Now is the time to enjoy life to the fullest. Make use of the little moments that come your way. They are so preci- Have picnics with your family, get enough rest, tired- out.
