America's Symbol

When you look up at me
with my red, white, and blue
waving proudly in the sky,
I hope you think about what I stand for
beyond placing your hand over heart
or standing at attention in salute.

I am so much more than
a woven cloth of stars and stripes...

I am your pride of the USA
that is worn, adorn
and individually flown
for all others to see.

I am the courage shown
by the valiant troops
who raise me up
after a victory won.

I am the solemn remembrance
of the duty served to America
that is draped over a coffin
and given folded to a loved one.

I am each state
united as one nation
under God
with liberty and justice for all.

I am Old Glory,
America's symbol to the world
that will always fly high
in the land of the free
and the home of the brave!

Author's Note

"America's Symbol" expresses what "Old Glory" should mean to every American ... with the same heartfelt pride ... that Francis Scott Key felt when seeing our beloved flag still flying on that historic day, inspiring him to write the "The Star Spangled Banner" that became our national anthem ... and when seeing the iconic image of the Marines raising the Old Glory on Iwo Jima during World War II ... Then there is every time seeing a flag draped coffin of a fallen American hero.
