I AM THE FLAG

OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


I am the flag of the United States of
America. My name is Old Glory.

I fly atop the worlds tallest buildings
and halls of justice.

I fly majestically over institutions of learning.

I stand guard with power in the world.

LOOK UP AND SEE ME!

I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice.

I stand for freedom.

I am confidant.

I am arrogant.

I am proud!

When I am flown with my fellow banners:

My head is a little higher.

My colors a little truer.

I bow to no one!

I am recognized all over the world.

I am worshipped - I am saluted.

I am loved - I am revered.

I am respected - I am feared.

I have fought in every battle of
every war for more than 200 years.

I was flown at Valley Forge, Gettysburg,
Shiloh and Appomatox.

I was there at San Juan Hill, the trenches
of France, in the Argonne Forest, Anzio, Rome
and the beaches of Normandy, Guam, Pearl
Harbor, Okinawa, Korea, Khesan, Saigon,
Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf .

I was there.

I led my troops.

I was dirty, battleworn and tired,
but my soldiers cheered me and I was proud!

I have been burned, torn and trampled on the
streets of countries I have helped set free.

It does not hurt, for I am invincible!
  
I have been soiled upon, burned, torn and
trampled on the streets of my country.

And when it is by those whom I`ve served in battle -

It hurts.

But I shall overcome - for I am strong.

I have slipped the bonds of Earth and stood
watch over the unchartered frontiers of space
from my vantage point on the moon.

I have borne silent witness to
all of Americas` finest hours.

But my finest hours are yet to come.

When I am torn into strips and used as
bandages on the battlefield.....

When I am flown at half-mast to honor my
soldiers.....
Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a
grieving parent or spouse at the grave of
their fallen loved one.....

I AM PROUD!


MY NAME IS OLD GLORY,

LONG MAY I WAVE!

DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN:

LONG MAY I WAVE.
