  <h1>Flexbox Align & Justify Examples

  <h2>Initial values:</h2>
  <ul>
    <li>align-items: stretch</li>
    <li>justify-content: flex-start</li>
  </ul>

  <p>The width of the flex items defaults to auto, as these are block level elements they stretch to the full width of their parent. So the flex-container is full width and align-items stretch means the items stretch to meet it.</p>
