My Name Is Old Glory  

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Received today :angel2:


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 feared.

I have fought in every battle of every war
for more then 200 years.
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.
The people of Korea, Vietnam and Kuwait
know me as a banner of freedom.
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 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 countryman,
when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent
at the grave of their fallen son or daughter,
or in the arms of a child or spouse who will have to go on
without one who gave their life in a national disaster
to save the life of another, as so many did at the Pentagon
or the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11/01.

That is one of the most beautiful things I have ever read. It is a shame that it takes something like this terrible tragedy to have the entire country rally around the flag. I am new to this forum and am glad to be here.

Hi Everyone :angel2:
The only part that was left out, was that our flag was even denounced by our own and we still take them back! How many countries would do that. The Lord loves us and he lives in each and everyone of our souls; our country is honored by an enormous amount of people. In my opinion, America shows God how much we believe in rightousness by the Freedom and the Democracy we show our citizens, by assisting those in need countless times. If your beliefs are not of mine...please, I show you no disprect. I am voicing my own belief and I am proud of what I believe in.

Dear Krazy Kat :angel2: :daisy:
