Happy Fourth of July!
Today everyone was excited to be celebrating the holiday with their families and with their fellow citizens of virtual ALA Empire Girls State. We had a timely discussion about proper flag folding and etiquette and some great ideas were shared about how to educate others on these topics. The girls also noted that they were excited to be able to watch Hamilton on Disney+ given the historical events that it portrays and the significance of this time of year in American history.
Overall, our time today was spent reflecting on what this holiday means to each of us individually and to the nation as a whole, and I think everyone felt a bit more thankful for the sacrifices that others have made to create and protect this country we call home.
