In Waubeka, Wisconsin, in 1885 Bernard John Cigrand a nineteen year old school teacher in a one room school placed a 10” 38 star flag in an inkwell and had his students write essays on what the flag meant to them. He called June 14th the flag’s birthday. Stony Hill School is now a historical site. From that day on Bernard J. Cigrand dedicated himself to inspire not only his students but also all Americans in the real meaning and majesty of our flag.
Hey Terry truthfully I haven't been around much either, just being lazy I guess. I do have to check out your "man cave" pictures. Have a great rest of the week and be safe my friend. I'm watching you :)
O Jesus, Who by reason of Thy burning love for us
hast willed to be crucified and to shed Thy Most Precious Blood for the redemption and salvation of our souls, look down upon us here gathered together in remembrance of Thy most sorrowful Passion and Death, fully trusting in Thy mercy;
cleanse us from sin by Thy grace, sanctify our toil, give unto us and unto all those who are dear to us our daily bread, sweeten our sufferings,
bless our families,and to the nations so sorely afflicted, grant Thy peace, which is the only true peace,so that by obeying Thy commandments
we may come at last to the glory of heaven.
