Letter from the Editor: June 2024

Dear Readers,

Happy June! It’s getting hot, but it’s my birthday month so I like it and I’m looking forward to the first day of summer. 🙂

Happy Flag Day! June 14th marks the 247th birthday of the U.S. flag, one of the oldest national flags in the world. The color scheme and design of the U.S. flag are symbolic of America itself. George Washington explained it this way: “We take the stars and blue union from heaven, the red from our mother country, separating it by white stripes, thus showing that we have separated from her, and the white stripes shall go down to posterity representing liberty.” It can also be said that the white stripes represent the peace and serenity of liberty, while the red stripes represent the blood spilled by Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

There’s been some controversy recently over how to fly the flag. The American flag is a special symbol of our nation and it should be treated with respect, thus showing respect for America itself. According to the U.S. Flag Code, flying the flag upside down for no apparent reason is considered disrespectful. However, it can be used as a signal of distress in situations of extreme danger to life, property, or country. This might be during a natural disaster, civil unrest, war and conflict, or political turmoil. Some may also use it as a form of protest, which is protected as free speech under the First Amendment.

Happy Father’s Day to all the homeschool dads out there! Fathers are our providers, protectors, coaches, counselors, role models, and so much more. Even though dads are not always perfect, they need our love and respect. Father’s Day is a good time to express some gratitude and appreciation for all that your father does for you. Have a great weekend!


Happy Homeschooling!
