For the week of February 8th Hello All, I learned something new this week… Americans have a creed. I thought I would share this. How come I have never heard about this before? The American’s Creed by William Tyler Page. This was written in 1917 and accepted by the United States House of Representatives on April 3, 1918. “I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.”

“You can't appreciate home till you've left it, money till it's spent, your wife until she's joined a woman's club, nor Old Glory till you see it hanging on a broomstick on a shanty of a consul in a foreign town.” O. Henry (1862 – 1919)
