Old Glory



She may be torn and tattered,
But, still our flag flies free;
Bought with a price, she proudly waves,
For all the world to see.
She will not be defeated,
Forever she will stand;
As Liberty, Freedom, and Justice,
Ring throughout this land.
The stars and stripes a symbol,
Of a country who still prays;
In God we trust... Our flag still stands,
America... Home of the Brave.
~Allison Chambers Coxsey, 2001

Allison I love what you are doing. Did you write this? I wish more people would show their respect for the flag. Well enough said on that, keep what you are doing. I am a disabled veteran. I retired from the Army in 1990. I support the flag were ever I go and I bet you do to. I have to go Bye William C. Kirby SSG Ret U.S. Army
