    I got this from my friend in South Africa with the title...."This is so awesome!"

    And people say that people in other countries don't like Americans.... My friend Joy sent this to me. Happy Memorial Day and remember those we have lost....

    I Am the Flag of the



    Of America

    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 watch in America's halls of justice.
    I fly majestically over institutions of learning.
    I stand guard with power in the world.
    Look up and see me.

    I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice.
    I stand for freedom.
    I am confident.
    I am arrogant.
    I am proud.

    When I am flown with my fellow banners,
    My head is a little higher,
    My colors a little truer.

    I bow to no one!
    I am recognized all over the world.
    I am worshipped - I am saluted.
    I am loved - I am revered.
    I am respected - and I am feared.

    I have fought in every battle

    of every war

    for more then 200 years.


    I was flown at Valley Forge,

    Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appamatox.
    I was there at San Juan Hill,

    the trenches of France,
    in the Argonne Forest,

    Anzio, Rome and the beaches of Normandy.


    Guam, Okinawa, Korea and

    KheSan, Saigon, Vietnam know me.
    I was there.
    I led my troops, I was dirty, battleworn and tired,
    But my soldiers cheered me and I was proud.

    I have been burned, torn and trampled on the

    streets of countries I have helped set free.
    It does not hurt for I am invincible.
    I have been soiled upon, burned, torn and

    trampled in the streets of my country.
    And when it's done by those

    Whom I've served in battle - it hurts.
    But I shall overcome - for I am strong.

    I have slipped the bonds of Earth

    and stood watch over the uncharted

    frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon.
    I have borne silent witness to all of America's finest hours.

    But my finest hours are yet to come.

    When I am torn into strips and used as bandages

    for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
    When I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier,
    Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent
    at the grave of their fallen son or daughter,

    I am proud.



    Please forward this message to all who still love

    and respect me that I may fly proudly

    for another two hundred years.

    Thanks...I cried too. It's nice to know that there are those out there that are patriotic. The original post was really cool with flags all over it.
