"Dede's Walk With God"


"I Am The Flag"
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 hall 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 than 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, Korea and KheSan, Saigon, Vietnam
knows me, I was there!
I led my troops, I was dirty, battle-tested and tired,
but my soldiers cheered me, and I was proud.
America has been attacked by cowardly fanatics
And many lives have been lost.
But those who would destroy me cannot win
for I am the symbol of freedom. One nation Under God -
Indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
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 been soiled upon, burned, torn and trampled
on the streets of my own 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 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 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!
May We Never Forget
