Happy Kansas Day

Happy Kansas Day

Today is the 153rd birthday of the State of Kansas.  The State motto at the top of the Kansas State seal contains the latin phrase “ad astra per aspera” which translates roughly into ‘to the stars through difficulties.’

Good thing that our pioneer forefathers selected State mottoes such as Kansas’ otherwise a modern citizenry might pick something more topical like ‘success through a Reality TV contract or EBT card’  …less so in the Great State of Kansas than some other parts of the country at least…gotta love ‘flyover country.’

Great Seal of the State of KansasI wonder how you’d say ‘success through a Reality TV contract or EBT card’ in latin?
