Newsletter subscriber and long-time follower, Hunter (@pruetang), sent us this picture, which, on the surface, appears very unassuming. However, the story behind it is nothing short of incredible. Recently, a house in Virginia Beach went up in flames, leaving nothing but smoke and ash behind. You can see the charred ceiling and chipped paint on the floor, with almost every surface covered in black soot. Nearly everything was torched – except for the resilient American Flag, which remained untouched, resting gently on the fireplace. If you zoom in you can see where the pole was scorched and dented, however, the flames somehow never touched the red, white, and blue. When he first saw it Hunter said it was “amazing”. We’ll leave it to you to read into any deeper meaning, but it struck us as both telling and symbolic. We would like to thank Hunter for sharing, and extend our gratitude to everyone who follows our brand on Instagram, Facebook, and e-mail. If you haven’t signed up for our e-mail newsletter yet, hit the link in our bio and check it out. You’ll join thousands of others who start their day with us by scrolling through a brief update on top stories, historic headlines, and one piece of trivia. We also post pictures like Hunter’s, which is one of our favorite parts of the curating process. We have a lot more coming your way– stay tuned.
Imagine it's 1775 and George Washington has just commissioned six ships to engage the British navy under a new white flag waving on all six masts, of a Pine Tree with the words written 'AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN'. He knew we wouldn't have a chance if we didn't have a strategy to attack the most powerful navy of its time. It was a straight up highjacking of some super valuable British ships with a full arsenal of weapons. We boarded those ships and sparked a revolution, which showed that we the people have strength even though we were completely out numbered. We would no longer take orders from parliament, and we were willing to appeal to a higher power to get righteousness and justice when we could no longer appeal to our king. We united as a people and formed a beautiful vision of what a free country could be. We have come a long way, mostly in baby steps. Basic human rights is still something we are voicing for. We can aim higher. At this very moment our President is turning the country upside down from the inside out. Many peaceful individuals are willing to stand and be counted. With love in our hearts, and the freedom flag waving. We are lucky to live here on earth, and I believe we are better than what is being portrayed of our great country. The story goes that six Iroquois Indian tribes that had been fighting for a long time came together to settle their differences. Six elder chiefs met under a huge virgin pine tree, dug a hole, and buried their hatchets. We can all do the same.
Meet Lady. Lady is a former USMC multipurpose canine, pictured here during her retirement ceremony at Camp Pendleton after 5 years of service. Dogs are truly incredible animals. Service dogs are a cut above the rest. These dogs risk their lives for America in some of the most dangerous places on earth and have proven themselves time and time again to be tremendous assets to the military. Lady, thank you for your service! This was just too awesome not to share.
Fourteen rapidly moving wildfires have consumed 57,000 acres and forced 20,000 people to evacuate their homes in California, authorities said Monday afternoon. The fires have destroyed more than 1,500 homes and commercial buildings. The biggest fires are burning in the Napa wine country. This picture was taken by Brooke Nicole at Disneyland while fires raged in the Anaheim Hills. Sending thoughts and prayers to California 🇺🇸: Brooke Nicole
