Honor America Days

Honor America Days starts on Flag Day, June 14, and runs until July 4. In accordance with 36 USC Sec. 112, the:

Congress declares that there be public gatherings and activities during that period at which the people of the United States can celebrate and honor their country in an appropriate way.

How can we celebrate?

Fly the American and your State flags.

Watch movies like The Buccaneer, The Patriot, Don’t Tread on Me, The Great Raid, Liberty! etc.

Organize old timey brass band concerts in the park.

Read the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States and George Washington’s farewell address with your family. Concentrate on the Bill of Rights. If you cannot take time off, do it for a couple of hours in the evening. Get the kids involved by letting them “help” interpret the portions of the Constitution and Bill of Rights that you think important.

Organize an Honor America Days parade half-way between June 14 and July 4.

Hold a barbecue, of course. Make sure that you have plenty of iced tea.

Write your congressman and both senators listing each legislation that you oppose and each legislation that you support. If, after you study the Constitution you realize that some of the legislation violate the Constitution, let them know that it is unconstitutional. They will get scared when they realize that you have been reading.

Tea Party, Tea Party, Tea Party.

PROC. NO. 5574. THE ROSE PROCLAIMED THE NATIONAL FLORAL EMBLEM OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Proc. No. 5574, Nov. 20, 1986, 51 F.R. 42197, provided:

Americans have always loved the flowers with which God decorates
our land. More often than any other flower, we hold the rose dear
as the symbol of life and love and devotion, of beauty and
eternity. For the love of man and woman, for the love of mankind
and God, for the love of country, Americans who would speak the
language of the heart do so with a rose.

We see proofs of this everywhere. The study of fossils reveals
that the rose has existed in America for age upon age. We have
always cultivated roses in our gardens. Our first President, George
Washington, bred roses, and a variety he named after his mother is
still grown today. The White House itself boasts a beautiful Rose
Garden. We grow roses in all our fifty States. We find roses
throughout our art, music, and literature. We decorate our
celebrations and parades with roses. Most of all, we present roses
to those we love, and we lavish them on our altars, our civil
shrines, and the final resting places of our honored dead.

The American people have long held a special place in their
hearts for roses. Let us continue to cherish them, to honor the
love and devotion they represent, and to bestow them on all we love
just as God has bestowed them on us.

The Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 159 [Pub. L. 99-449, now
this section], has designated the rose as the National Floral
Emblem of the United States and authorized and requested the
President to issue a proclamation declaring this fact.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, RONALD REAGAN, President of the United States
of America, do hereby proclaim the rose as the National Floral
Emblem of the United States of America.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twentieth
day of November, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and
eighty-six, and of the Independence of the United States of America
the two hundred and eleventh.
Ronald Reagan.
