Brand new state. Opening lines to Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic "Oklahoma"

We have all heard the song before and we (that is if you grew up here )have sang the song a time or two. So back to brand new. 

Soon our state will join nine other states and Commonwealths in getting a new stamp. Not just any stamp but a "forever stamp."

This will fall under the continuance of the Postal Services Flags of Our Nation Series. Here in America we have the freedom to speak our minds, live out our dreams and conduct business. And it all comes from unity. A unified nation that has been living on the same principals for over 235 years and over a century right here in Oklahoma.

On August 11, 2011, Lt. Gov Todd Lamb will be on hand at the Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Dr. in Oklahoma City for the dedication. Members of the Oklahoma History Society and Postal officials will be on hand as well. The forever stamp will go on sale that day in Post Offices around the Sooner State.
