This is how my mother and uncles would have dressed on Flag Day .

People in our neighborhood would dress their homes us like this for Fourth of July and "Flag Day"...or what was called Remembrance Day.

It's almost 11:00 here...we will be stopping and saying a prayer for ALL of our fallen soldiers.... in ALL the Wars that the United States has been involved in.

TOO MANY for sure.

** I am also 100 % convinced that if women ( mother's ) would have been IN CHARGE of the Wars in History......they would never have occurred, or were no longer than about 3 days in length.

Mother, Grandmother, Rose

Seems like alot of things would be different if women ruled,,,I agree,,,and what about boxing,rape,power,,,,etc.. We are so unevolved...
