I have lived in Arizona all my life but only recently read the stats about my state.
Our flag
Capital: Phoenix
Joined the Union: Feb. 14, 1912
                                48th State to join the union.
Motto: Ditat Deus (God Enriches)
Nickname: The Grand Canyon State
Flower: Flower of the saguaro cactus
Bird: Cactus Wren:

Song: Arizona March Song
Origin of Name: From the Native American word "Arizonac," meaning "little spring" or "young spring."

When Governor Brewer signed the immigration law in April, Arizona was to have had a black eye but you may like to know the status today. There has been 3.6 million dollars donated to help fight the lawsuit brought against us with 42,000 people donating and 25 states have said they would draft similar laws in their states. I've always been happy to be an Arizonaian but maybe today just a tad more.

Yeah for Arizona. The majority of Tennesseeans agree with your law put on the books. May we follow suit. Peace
