It’s Time To Spring Forward America!…Boo! #dst

Daylight Saving Time (United States) 2016 begins at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 13 and ends at 2:00 AM on Sunday, November 6.

Most mobile phones will adjust automatically. However set your alarm for tomorrow earlier just in case. You have to adjust all the clocks in your house manually tomorrow.

To me freedom is about assuring life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is extended to the least of these. America is only great when everyone can realize equal opportunities. Security is more than a call to arms its knowing that everyone is safe in the knowledge that their future will be bright. Today we should look ahead to new things and we cannot revisit the past that held people back.
