US Flag Day 2018

Perhaps the onerous clouds over the flag represent the breakdown of civil discourse and rise of mean-spirited nationalism, a great darkness threatening to extinguish the light of truth represented in the founding principles of our great country and others throughout the world.  Lord, we pray for the patience, humility and an open heart from which to hear and understand one another.  But also, give us strength to stand united, firmly, against absolutism, intolerance and ignorance.

On a lighter note – Flag Day in the United States falls on June 14th each year. On June 14th, 1777 the Second Continental Congress adopted the United States flag. It wasn’t until 1916 that Flag Day was officially declared, by Woodrow Wilson who was the United States president at the time.

These photos don’t really give a sense of the scale of this enormous flag at Camping World on I-40 in Greensboro.  I believe this flag is at least 100 feet (30 meters) across!
