Transcript for June 14th
Welcome to June 14th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate the season’s best colors in red, white and blue. More after the break from Anna Devere.
Most people believe that Betsy Ross created the American flag in 1777 and Old Glory’s design has changed 26 times since then. But one thing remains a constant: We Americans love our flag. It’s even the subject of our National Anthem. During the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, athletes from around the world pause in front of the host country’s head of state, and dip their nation’s flag in tribute. Only one country doesn’t dip their flag: The United States. On National Flag Day, unfurl the Stars and Stripes and put your American spirit on display in good old red, white and blue.
For most of the country, June is peak strawberry season and freshly picked strawberries may be among the most delicious things in the world. But anyone who’s bought a basket knows that they don’t stay fresh for long. So what do you do with all those perfect berries? Well, the ones you don’t eat right away can be made into desserts like strawberry shortcake. All it takes is strawberries, cake, and whipped cream to create this sublime dessert. On National Strawberry Shortcake Day celebrate the simple perfection of the season’s best berry.
