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 at me
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 worshiped - I am saluted. I
am
loved and I am revered. I am respected - and I am feared. I was
flown at
Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appomattox. 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 soiled upon,
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's 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 born
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.

MY NAME IS OLD GLORY, LONG MAY I WAVE.
DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN, LONG MAY I WAVE!

PLEASE FORWARD MY MESSAGE TO ALL WHO STILL LOVE AND RESPECT ME, THAT
I MAY
FLY PROUDLY FOR ANOTHER TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE YEARS.

Amen.

I was a little suprised (sadly) but very happy and fiercly proud to here my five year old son tell me yesterday that on his first day of kindegarten they taught him the pledge of allegience.

Long may she wave!
