I love how my pictures turned out of the flag in front of the sunset! You know that Betsy Ross designed our first flag, but did you know that a high school student designed our current flag? It was a school project where Robert Heft designed a flag to include Alaska and Hawaii. He got a B- from his teacher. But in 1960, when President Eisenhower choose his design as our new flag, the teacher reconsidered and gave him a A.
“To the blessed land of Room Enough beyond the ocean bars,
Where the air is full of sunlight and the flag is full of stars.”
Henry Van Dyke
“Everybody everywhere, all earth-dwellers: When you see a flag flying on the mountain, look! When you hear the trumpet blown, listen!”
