Have you been to the Smithsonian in Washington and seen the original Old Glory that's preserved there? It's a moving experience, for sure. I love History.com and, in honor of tomorrow, here's a great video about Old Glory and the history behind our nation's flag…
Click here to watch (there's a brief 10 second commercial prior to the video, then "backward" click to return to Writes of Passage)
Wherever you're going to be tomorrow––with family and friends enjoying a picnic in a park, or perhaps celebrating the holiday in a quieter setting at home––and you see the flags waving proudly in your neighborhood and town, I hope you'll take a moment to reflect on the cost of Old Glory. I'll be doing the same.
Now, to switch gears…
The latest issue of Southern Writers Magazine released on Monday, and whether you're a writer or a reader, I encourage you to check it out. And please don't judge the magazine by it's cover (grin)! Southern Writers has some great articles on upcoming books, tips on writing, and in this issue I share at length about the brainstorming group that Robin and I are both part of that meets in July every year. And that's coming up soon, actually! Can hardly wait!
Southern Writers Magazine is usually for subscribers only but since July represents their anniversary, this month's issue is free! Hope you enjoy it!
Will you be displaying Old Glory at your home or apartment tomorrow? We will be. I hope you have a wonderful holiday!
Blessings on your Tuesday, friends,
