“The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more”

Back in 1961, Congress designated May 15 as a day to honor police officers who have been killed. Starting in 1986, North Carolina established its own Peace Officer Memorial Day, honoring fallen officers from the prior year. Sadly, two more names were added to that roll on May 4: Officer Timothy Brackeen of the Shelby P.D. and Deputy John Isenhour of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

A symbol means as much to anyone as what they attach to it, and for many of us the Stars and Stripes is the ultimate symbol and expression of what it means to be an American.
