Mancat Monday celebrating Flag day.

Hello evfurryone,

Genghis here. Today is officially Flag day - but its also Pause for the Pledge Day. Two ideas - but they both have one theme, to remember to give some thought to our flag and our freedoms

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.


O Beautiful Banner, Concord Song from "A Book of Songs," 1924 Homer H. Harbour and Birdsall Otis Edey

O beautiful banner all splendid with stars,
That in the breeze is flying,
Proud emblem of the free!
My heart and hand salute you,
Dear flag of liberty.
From ocean to ocean you brighten our land,
O'er prairie, forest, mountain,
Superb against the sky.
Oh flag for which men labor!
Oh flag for which men die!

Proud to be an American Kitty - living in a land that's free.

Purrs,
Genghis

Hello everyone,
Penny here, I just wanted to add my two cents to this Post. by including this little excerpt from a Letter by Teddy Roosevelt.

Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Richard Hurd, January 3, 1919.

We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile. We have room for but one language here and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a pollyglot boarding house; and we have room for but one, soul loyalty, and that loyalty is to the American people.

Hugs,
Penny
