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 world's tallest buildings. I stand watch in America's 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
confident. 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 - and I am

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

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

I was there at San Juan Hill, the trenches of France, in the Argonne
Forest, Anzio, Rome and the beaches of Normandy.

Guam, Okinawa, Korea and KheSan, Saigon, Vietnam know me. I was there.
I led my troops, I was dirty, battle worn 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 in the streets of my country. And
when it's done 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 uncharted
frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon. I have borne
silent witness to all of America's finest hours.

But my finest hours are yet to come.!

When I am torn into strips and used as bandages for my wounded comrades
on the battlefield, When I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent at the grave
of their fallen son or daughter,

I am proud.

This is why we fight for freedom....

Did this catch your attention???? It didn't need to be bashed ! :rolleyes:
