Old Glory


"She's a grand ole flag, a high flying flag, and forever in peace may she wave. She's the emblem of the land I love - the home of the free and the brave."  ~ George M. Cohan ~

No matter what her name - Old Glory, Stars and Stripes, Star Spangled Banner,  - she represents more than Freedom: she represents the ultimate sacrifice made to secure the Freedom we enjoy. She represents those who serve all over the world on our behalf.

Today as you gather with friends and family to celebrate Independence Day, say a prayer of thanks for the soldiers who serve and even die to secure our freedom. Say a prayer for the families who cope with long absences, financial struggles, and sometimes grief so their loved ones are able to protect our freedom.

Old Glory flies high and proud because of these individuals: God bless them, and God bless America.
