Today is Flag Day part of Flag Week in the U.S., marking adoption of the Stars & Stripes on June 14, 1777. At 7:00 tonight, all Americans are invited to "Pause for the Pledge" as those who attend national ceremonies at Fort McHenry National Monument pledge allegiance to the flag.

Put your hand on your heart an salute Old Glory.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
