Happy Flag Day! 
On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress declared “that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” Since then, the 13 stars have expanded to 50. The most recent design of the flag was adopted in 1960, and suggestions and new designs were submitted during the 1950s. 
This letter to President Eisenhower from 8-year-old Sheryl Byland suggests moving the stars so that they spell out “USA.”
The White House wrote back to Sheryl, and you can read the response here.


Letters from kids are my favorite thing in the world. Regardless of the topic, they make me cry. I love how thoughtful and endearing kids tend to be when something matters enough to them to write a letter about it. This one is so great- the apology for disturbing President Eisenhower is so so charming. <3
