Saturday Night Special: Teach Your Children Graham Nash.
This edition of Saturday Night Special is dedicated to the nine individuals in Charleston, SC who lost their lives while attesting to the betterSee More angels of their nature. May God rest their souls and have mercy on ours.
All songs written by Graham Nash unless otherwise noted

Why is June 14th Flag Day? On that day in 1777, the original stars and stripes design, thirteen stars arranged in a circle on a blue field in the upper left corner with the attendant red and white stripesSee More completing the standard, was officially adopted as the American flag.
Flag Day celebrates the birthday of the Stars and Stripes; however, the holiday's own origins are a little harder to pin down. Beginning in 1885, it was celebrated by individual localities at first and then various states, which one by one joined the festivities, until May 30th, 1916, when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed June 14th as a day of recognition in honor of the country's flag.
But that wasn't the end of the long road to official status. It was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Harry Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.
So, Happy 238th birthday to the American flag and, depending on how you calculate it, happy130th or 99th or 66th birthday to Flag Day. Wouldn't it be nice if we, as individuals, had the same option in regard to our age? :)See Less
