The United States of America…….the nation which is best described as the world Freedom Defender. The most powerful nation….. not only by its Armed-Forces, but very audibly also, by its culture……..by its history……..by its vision ……, influenced by Greco-Roman philosophers–by its political values.
With the fifty vivid stars sparkling in the blue sky……the American flag stands forever the unparalleled symbol of Freedom and Liberty……the portrayal of a prosperous Nation in God’s Trust.
(Excerpt from ‘The American Era and the World– the American Exceptionalism’ by Catherine Stella Schmidt)
Red: valor and bravery
White: purity and innocence
Blue: vigilance, perseverance, and justice
“When the crowd is going one way, it can be hard to be the only one going in the other direction.
In America, we don’t celebrate the mob. We celebrate the person who has the Courage & Conviction to Stand up to the mob. Have the Courage to Stand up to the mob.Be a leader.”

Proclaimed by President Obama from September 9 to September 11 — the days of Remembrance and Prayers for September 11, 2001.
“On September 11, 2001, a group of small and hateful minds conspired to threaten the very fiber of our country, seeking to break the American spirit and destroy our way of life. From the Atlantic to the Pacific, Americans were struck with grief as devastation and senseless loss of innocent human life unfolded. In the empty shadow of the World Trade Center, the remains of the Pentagon, and a charred Pennsylvania field where courageous passengers saved countless lives, what emerged from the ashes of that day was not defeat — it was the heroism, compassion, and unity of the American people, which no act of terror or hate could ever take away. On September 11, we recall the true spirit of our Nation following these heinous attacks, and we resolve to enshrine the enduring compassion and love of our people forever in the heart of America.” Presidential Proclamation National Days of Prayer and Remembrance, 2016 © The White House
