This Memorial Day found me in the home that my Dad and his lovely wife share.  Dad and Mom lived here together for many years before Mom’s death from cancer in 2008.  Many things in the home are just the way Mom left them, thanks to the respect of Dad’s new wife for him and us kids. 

One of those things is the rag drawer.  I’ve misplaced the case for the lenses that magnetically attach to make my regular glasses into sun glasses, and I knew just where to look for a scrap of material in which to wrap them. 

Mom liked soft clothes, so the drawer is full of flannels, knits, and cottons.  She hated binding clothes – she’d cut tee shirt necks and remove their sleeves.  There were several pairs of shirtless sleeves of various colors and lengths, all neatly folded.  Plaids she wore in the garden, a paisley, a flowered print – mostly light colored, some worn and thin, some new cast-offs from a garment she’d made; all soft.

Message from the Director
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States are the two most important, and enduring documents in our Nation’s history. It has been said that “the Declaration of Independence was the promise; the Constitution was the fulfillment.”

More than 200 years ago, our Founding Fathers set out to establish a government based on individual rights and the rule of law. The Declaration of Independence, which officially broke all political ties between the American colonies and Great Britain, set forth the ideas and principles behind a just and fair government, and the Constitution outlined how this government would function. Our founding documents have withstood the test of time, rising to the challenge each time they were called upon.
