       Why Do We Stand?
  We stand to honor the Stars and Stripes forever!
We stand for the playing of our national anthem which
represents our collective love for our country!
 
 Why Do We Stand? 
We stand to express our sincere appreciation
for the men and women in uniform that have
sacrificed life and limb to assure our freedom!
 
Why Do We Stand?
We stand to show our pride in being Americans,
regardless of age, race, religion or origin of nationality!
 
Why Do We Stand?
We stand for our freedom of speech, our freedom
of expression and without the fear of oppression.
 
Why Do We Stand?
We stand for God’s blessing to be Americans,
and live in the greatest country in the world!
 
So, if in good conscious, you can’t stand,
please feel free to leave on the next flight out!
