My Dear Old Flag

representing a nation united by the noblest

idea of equality among mankind, this dear

old flag of mine.

There are many flags, representing other peoples

and other lands, but none other flag brings a

tear to my eye, as it ripples freely in the breeze

against an American sky.

There are many who have died beneath the stars

and stripes, because they cherished what she

symbolizes: a nation conceived in liberty, where

Americans can live and die free.

My Dear old flag , when our forefathers gave birth

to the United States of America, God shined His

light on thee;

Many a loved one, and many an American has

sacrificed to keep my dear old flag from falling

In places where people still long to taste liberty.

I owe much to my fellow countrymen

More than I can ever repay.

They will forever hold a place in my heart, and come

to my remembrance every time I place my hand over

my American heart, and say:

'I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the

United States of America

and to the Republic for which it stands,

one Nation under God,

indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.'

There are thirteen stripes, on my dear

old flag, alternate red and white; that join

fifty stars, white in a field of blue

representing a nation united by the noblest

idea of equality among mankind, this dear

old flag of mine.
