Every time we have a holiday that honors our country and our soldiers, I have a difficult time finding words that even begin to show my gratitude and awe.
The flag of the United States of America. I’d like to take a moment and go back to the beginning. What is the meaning of this flag, why is it such an important symbol? Let’s not forget:
Its stars represent the 50 states of the USA. It’s important because it represents the people of America, the people who live in these great states who make up our nation.
Its stripes represent the 13 British colonies who declared independence from Great Britain. It’s important because it represents our Freedom here in America.
Its colors are Red, White, and Blue. Red stands for hardiness and velour, White stands for purity, and Blue stands for vigilance, justice and perseverance.
Salute our flag not only today but every day, if for nothing else, out of respect of this great nation we are so blessed to live in.
