I am your flag<br />
<br />
I was born on June 14, 1777.<br />
<br />
I am more than just cloth shaped into a design.<br />
<br />
I am the refuge of the world’s oppressed people.<br />
 <br />
I am the silent Sentinel of freedom.<br />
<br />
I am the emblem of the greatest sovereign nation on earth.<br />
<br />
I am the inspiration for which American patriots give their lives and fortunes.<br />
 <br />
I have led your sons into battle from Valley Forge to the bloody ridges of Korea.<br />
<br />
I walk in silence with each of your honored dead, to their final resting place beneath the silent white crosses rows upon row.<br />
<br />
I have flown through peace and war, strife and prosperity, and amidst it all I have been respected.<br />
<br />
My red stripes… symbolize the blood spilled in defense of this glorious nation.<br />
<br />
My white stripes signify the burning tears shed by Americans who lost their sons.<br />
<br />
My blue field is indicative of god’s heaven under which I fly. <br />
<br />
My stars… clustered together, unify 50 states as one, for God and country.<br />
<br />
Old glory is my nickname, and proudly I wave on high.<br />
<br />
Honor me, respect me, defend me with your lives and your fortunes.<br />
<br />
Never let my enemies tear me down from my lofty position, lest I never return.<br />
<br />
Keep alight the fires of patriotism, strive earnestly for the spirit of your republic.<br />
<br />
Worship eternal God and keep his commandments, and I shall remain the bulwark of peace and freedom for all mankind.<br />
<br />
I am your flag.<br />
<br />
This is a public service of Patriotic American Youth PO Box 363, Jackson, MS
