I am your Flag.
I have been kicked, trampled, burned, and shot full
of holes. I have fought battles, but I prefer the
untroubled air of a world at peace.

I am your Flag. I represent the freedom of
humanity, and I shall fly high, thundering in silence
for the whole world to hear. My gentle rustling in
the breeze sounds out the warning to all who
would bury me forever that below stands a
population dedicated to liberty.

For those who have perished for my right to
freedom of flight, for those who will die, and
indeed, for those who will live, I stand as a symbol
of freedom-loving people.

I have been carried into battle in faraway lands,
always for the cause of freedom. I am bloodstained,
torn and many times wearied and saddened by the
thousands who have paid the supreme sacrifice. Do
not let it be for nothing. Tell me the brave have all
died for a worthwhile cause. Be proud of what I
represent and display me for all to  see.

Whether you call me Old Glory,Stars and Stripes,or
Star-Spangled Banner, I shall fly forever as a
symbol of your freedom, as I did for your
ancestors, and as I shall for your heirs.

Stars and Stripes Forever

Let martial note in triumph float
And liberty extend its mighty hand;
A flag appears 'mid thunderous cheers,
The banner of the Western land.
The emblem of the brave and true.
Its folds protect no tyrant crew;
The red and white and starry blue
Is freedom's shield and home.
Other nations may deem their flags the best
And cheer them with fervid elation
But the flag of the North and South and West
Is the flag of flags, the flag of Freedom's nation.
Hurrah for the flag of the free!
May it wave as our standard forever,
The gem of the land and the sea,
The banner of the right.
Let despots remember the day
When our fathers with mighty endeavor
Proclaimed as they marched to the fray
That by their might and by their right
It waves forever.
