January 29th is when we celebrate Kansas Day. It is when the 34th star was added to the American flag. Prior to these actions pioneers were required to blaze a trail across the prairie. Settlers were required to tame the land and make homes among hard conditions.

Soldiers were required to protect wagon trains moving across the prairie. Later, they left these new homes to fight for freedom and equality across our nation.

Due to hardships, difficulties, and harsh conditions Kansas made a people who can face tough times. Kansas continues to make strong people for the challenges of today and tomorrow.

As we focus on Kansas Day let us remember our motto, Ad Astra Per Aspera – to the stars through difficulties.
