The flag of the U.S

History of the Flag

The true history of the star and Stripes has become so cluttered by a volume of myth and tradition that the facts are difficult ,and in some cases impossible,to establish.For example,it is not certain who designed the Star and Stripes,who made the first such flag,or even weather it ever flew in any sea fight or land battle of the American Revolution.

One thing all agree on is that the Star and Stripes originated as the result of a resolution offered by the marine Committee of the second Continental Congress at Philadelphia and adopted June 14,1777.It read:

Resolved:that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes,alternate red and white;that the union be thirteen star,white in a blue field,representing a new constellation.

Congress gave no hint as to the designer of the flag,no instruction as to the arrangement of the star,and no information on its appropriate uses.historians have been unable to find the original flag law.The resolution establishing the flag was not even publishing until Sept.2 1777.Despite repeated request,Washington did not get the flag until 1783,after the Revolutionary War was over.And there is no certainty that they were the Star and Stripes.

On a plaque at the entrance to the statue are verses by the American poet, Emma Lazarus. They read in part:

Give me your tired,your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breaht free,
The wretched refuse of your
teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless,
tempest-tossed to me,
I left my lamp beside the golden door.
Its very great Guy's....The smile pockets a rattling controversy.

Making The Home

Making the Home functional and beautiful is a responsibility of every member of the family. This responsibility becomes difficult when all the family members are pre-occupied with many things outside the home. Therefore, it is necessary that the house and everything in it is arranged in every functional manner and in a way that will make cleaning and caring easier.


There are times when you do things by force of habit. Habits are not at all bad. In fact, they are important and quite useful. They spare you of having to think about every single thing you do everyday. However, habits could be disastrous sometimes. Suppose you are used to studying your lessons as soon as you get home from school. Unluckily, there is a new brownout schedule in your place which falls exactly on your study time. This gives you a hard time adjusting, but you have no choice except to develop a new habit a new plan of action.
