Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

This Day in History

Salute the Red, White and Blue!



June 14 - National Flag Day

This Day in History

It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


Whereas June 14 has been set aside as National Flag Day, that does not mean the flag should wave only on this one day of the year.

Make every day your flag day:
Salute and honor the red, white and blue!


Revisit Stitches in Time and test your knowledge
of the making of the American flag.




God bless America!

[Celine Dion (With Lyrics & History)]

Happy Birthday, US Army
Congratulations to the United States Army on the celebration of its 237th birthday! Without our military, we would not be enjoying today the freedoms America has to offer.

Remember all of our soldiers not only on this momentous day but every day of every month of every year!

I salute the U.S. Army! What about you?

It is a great portrayal of the U.S. Army from then 'til now.
