The American Rosie Movement

Teens from Gilmer County High School

Teens from Gilmer County High School attended the celebration by the Embassy of the Netherlands last month in Washington. The teen girl in the dark red shirt is Kendra Fox, who was the first person to Ring a Bell For Rosies, which is now an international event.

Kendra was 7 then. She’s now 14.  A quiet and sincere teen who loves the Rosies is perfect for helping to lead our movement where people don’t blame but do something to respect what Rosies did – pull together to do quality work for freedom, and do it in a cooperative spirit.

Thanks! Plain and Simple to Kendra, her sister Elliott, Noah Hamrick, Tommy Spada, his mom, Connie Spada, and the Embassy of the Netherlands. They’re showing that people will pull together to do something to pass our freedom onto others, young and old.  

Soon after, on February 2, Anne attended the Chapel of the Four Chaplains annual event in Philadelphia, where she sat at a table with six people from Holland and others with a bell nearby that was rung at the National Naval History Museum by Ambassador Haspels in Washington.

The wonderful phrase that the Dutch use to ask us to keep freedom flowing into the future is:

Greef Vrjheid Door.  Their torch pen is one of my favorites – the flame will die out if we don’t use our freedom to keep it bright.
