Clay Aiken – Using The Social Network

Today is Bastille Day

France celebrates Bastille Day on July 14. Bastille Day is the equivalent of America’s July 4th. It is celebrated across France. Celebrations include fireworks, parades, and Fireman’s Galas, in which firehouses across France open their doors to the public for a night of partying.

Bastille Day remembers the end of the French monarchy and the beginning of the French Revolution.

The French had good reason to rebel. The corrupt king and queen’s actions were causing the poor to go hungry and the wealthy, middle-class merchants and businessmen were tired of not having their concerns heard. By the late 1780s, people in France were fed up and so they began speaking out and met in groups to demand that new laws be made. King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette tried to quiet everyone, but the citizens eventually rebelled.

The flag of France has three colors; Blue, white and red. They symbolize the Republic’s three ideals: Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity for all French citizens.

So…to all our French readers, we wish you a wonderful holiday.

They help us to know if we are on the right track and it also boosts our listing on Google. For those who get the e-mail, I hope you will click on the link to see the real page occasionally and then it is easier to leave a comment. CANN
  2. CANN has a Facebook page too. I can add quick info and pictures there so check it out! Clay Aiken News Network has 1,257 likes. Check it out HERE

  1. I love CANN. You always bring us the most up to date news and information for us.
    Thanks Musicfan.

  2. Just a big thank you to musicfan for all the dedication and hard work to keep the news up to date on multiple sites. This wonderful work of yours surely delights, motivates, and inspires existing fans & supporters, as well as attracting new ones. I know I am constantly intrigued & delighted. Best PR on the Internet for Clay Aiken, the future Congressman for NC02, the artist, the humanitarian – and the man!

  3. I forgot to mention the PICTURES! And topical stuff like Bastille Day – and the creative way you link this great stuff. These 4th of July pix today are just a reminder of how much Clay values people from the small towns – the heartland, so to speak – and these wonderful local community celebrations, so much so that he makes sure those dearest to him get to experience these occasions with him. He is truly a man of and for the people of NC – and once elected, a man to make positive changes for not only his own district but the nation. Can't thank you enough!

  4. I totally agree with all of the above. I absolutely love this site. I'm amazed at how much work you must put into all the research etc you do. We all appreciate all that you do. We salute you. Many thanks!! I also "try" to ignore the crazies. But it is so hard to read all that crap and keep from responding. I do post at least once a day with a positive post. CLAY FOR NC
