Flag Day

June 14th is Flag Day here in the United States to comemorate the Stars and Stripes.

Flag Day began back in 1885 when a school teacher in Wisconsin asked his students to celebrate our flag's birthday that June 14th. Newspapers picked up the story and the day began to gain more followers.

Malkin has some great Stars and Stripes Pictures, but I like to show my favorite one that I took last summer when I visited Ground Zero for the second time.

On the sign are names of some of the people who died on 9/11.
