|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 for peace, honor, truth, and justice.
When I am flown with my fellow banners,
I bow to no one.
I have fought every battle of every war for more than 200 years…
I was there!
I led my soldiers.
I have been soiled, burned, torn and trampled on the streets of countries
I have slipped the bonds of Earth
I have been a silent witness to all of America’s finest hours.
I am proud.
