AND Happy Birthday, Great Seal of the United States
On this day in 1782, the US Congress adopted the Great Seal, with an eagle (the U.S. emblem), a 13-star crown to represent the country as a new constellation in the galaxy of nations, and a 13-tiered pyramid to stand for permanence.
Even the colors are symbols: red stands for hardiness and courage, white stands for purity and innocence, and blue represents vigilance, perseverance, and justice.
- Design a seal or shield to represent you or your family. What symbols show your special values or traits?
I am busy making every day special by taking a trip through California, Oregon, and Washington.
The daily posts will be minimal during my trip. Happy summer to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere!
