Thursday, June 30th, 2011

It will be a day of outdoor fun, barbecues and fireworks displays. A day when proud Americans stand even taller and hold their heads even higher. We are bold, determined individuals at all times, and on the 4th of July we celebrate our freedoms and way of life.

On Independence Day, people from across this great nation will come together to hang out, share funny stories and create new memories. And we’ll take a moment to remember the patriots who made this day possible.


Happy Flag Day, America

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

The American Flag. It’s more than the symbol of our country. It’s the symbol of our pride, our personality, our unity.

Old Glory was adopted as the official flag of the United States on June 14, 1777. Today, the stars and stripes fly just as bravely and boldly as ever. The flag represents us; the American people. And today we can proudly stand beneath our flag and salute more than 200 years of freedom.


American Independence

flagWe are Americans. Strong, bold, determined individuals who never stop working for a better tomorrow. On the Fourth of July we celebrate our independence.

America was forged by people who believed that anything was possible, and just kept working until they succeeded. That conviction still permeates the country today. There is no obstacle too big for us to overcome, no goal we cannot achieve and no destination we will not reach if we set our minds to it. We stand together, toil together and triumph together.

Haiti has dominated the news since a devastating magnitude-7 earthquake hit the country on January 12, 2010. The cataclysmic event resulted in an estimated 200,000 deaths and 250,000 injuries. More than 1.5 million people are thought to be homeless due to the massive destruction of property.

Rescue efforts began immediately after the shaking subsided; the intense quake left many people buried under rubble. Crews dug through homes, schools and buildings searching for signs of life. Some lucky people were saved by workers who bravely risked their own lives, but as the week progressed, hope of finding additional survivors diminished.
