Happy 4th of July To All of You !!!!


Our Flag

by William A. Predeau

IT FLIES HIGH UP IN THE SKIES
FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE
A BEAUTIFUL SYMBOL OF THIS LAND
OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY

IT’S FLOWN FOR OVER 200 YEARS
ABOVE THIS WONDEROUS LAND
AND MANY A SOLDIER GAVE HIS LIFE
TO ENSURE IT CONTINUES TO STAND

WHEN FORMER POWS WERE ASKED

WHAT HELPED TO GET THEM THROUGH

MANY SHOWED TATTERED PIECES OF CLOTH

OF THE COLORS RED, WHITE AND BLUE

SO LET US NOT FORGET THE MEN

WHO FORGED THIS LAND WE LOVE

AND THE SYMBOL THEY CREATED

TO FLY THE SKIES ABOVE

REMEMBER TO HONOR THIS BEAUTIUL FLAG

EVERY TIME IT PASSES YOU BY

STAND AND SHOW THE PROPER RESPECT

AND LONG MAY IT CONTINUE TO FLY♥
