I have struggled with this post. I wanted to communicate the sacrifice and bravery that has been exemplified by all of the men and women that have put their lives on the line for the ideals and beliefs that make America what it is today. I was also going to put my gratitude into words. I fell short of both tasks again and again. Words aren't enough.
I can say that I have recently begun studying some of the history of our conflicts. History is a humbling lens through which to view our world. My hope is that we can all be thankful that there were, and continue to be, those that sacrifice everything for the ideals that we are still trying to achieve today.
It is with an eye toward history that we created our latest design. The artwork is based on the Bennington flag.This flag is one of the many flown during the American Revolution. It is notable for the "76" written under the 13 stars that represent the 13 original colonies. The flag also bore 13 red and white stripes.
The graphic tee and tank will be ready to ship in time for the 4th of July and will be accompanied by a substantial discount. Lightweight, cool and with an enduring, attractive design, these items will be perfect for any Independence Day celebration! Watch for the release on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
From everyone at The Modest Mammoth:
Thank you to all of the men and women that have or continue to defend our way of life.
