Flag Day
By Presidential Proclamation; honors and celebrates our flag, our country, and our heritage.

I urge all Americans to observe Flag Day and National Flag Week by flying the Stars and Stripes from their homes and other suitable places. I also call upon the people of the United States to observe with pride and all due ceremony those days from Flag Day through Independence Day, also set aside by the Congress (89 Stat. 211), as a time to honor America, to celebrate our heritage in public gatherings and activities, and to publicly recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America.*

Remember when the kids went away for college and then moved on with their lives, never to return again? Well not any more!

With the unbelievably high cost of life these days, more and more of our big “little ones” are returning to the “empty nest.”   And sometimes with a significant other too! Oy!

So today’s the day for bringing awareness to this phenomenon, as well as to offer support for those suffering parents.
