 Reflections of My Heart

USA The Pledge of Our Flag  ღ KKD ღ

The Pledge of Our Flag

I will represent freedom ...
One nation under God.
A country that is meant to lead
and stand united

I will change and grow over the years

I will be honored and dishonored

I will be pledged and burned

I will be displayed with honor
Then hidden as though
something to be ashamed of

I will lead men and women into battles
and sadly cover the caskets
of those who made the ultimate
sacrifice for my honor

I will represent justice
and freedom for all

I will carry the pain of this country
and come to the aid of other nations

I will represent the eternal hope
of a better life for those who seek

I will see patriotism rise
and fall many times

I wait paitently to hear the pledge
made by all of our children once again
before beginning their studies.

I will always be ready
when called upon

Through all the joys,
pain and tears
I will ever wave proudly
Though the Grace of God
and because....
I am The American Flag.

Simply signed

Old Glory

God Bless

God continues to Bless America
Don't you think it's time to
invite him back???

I would like to take this time to
extend my deepest heart felt thanks
and pride to our brave men
and women of the military
and all of the public servants
that also put their lives in danger
every single day so you and I dont have
to live in fear and can have a
true appreciation for what it
means to be an American
living in freedom because
we are

God bless each of you
and may He hold you
in His loving protective arms.
