“I was born on June 14th, 1777.  I am more than just cloth shaped into a design.
I am the refuge of the World’s oppressed people.
I am the silent sentinel of Freedom.
I am the emblem of the greatest sovereign nation on the earth.
I am the inspiration for which American Patriots gave their lives and fortunes.
I have led your sons into battle from Valley Forge to the ridges of Viet Nam.
I walk in silence with each of your Honored Dead, to their final resting place beneath the silent White Crosses, row upon row.
I have flown through Peace and War, Strife and Prosperity, and midst it all I have been respected.
My Red Stripes…symbolize the blood spilled in defense of this glorious nation.
My White Stripes…signify the burning tears shed by Americans who lost their sons.
My Blue Field…is indicative of God’s heaven under which I fly.
My Stars…clustered together, unify 50 States as one, for God and Country…
“Old Glory” is my nickname, and proudly I wave on high.
Honor me, respect me, defend me with your lives and your fortunes.
Never let my enemies tear me down from my lofty position, lest I never return.
Worship Eternal God and keep His commandments and I shall remain the bulwark of peace and freedom for all mankind…

Pray for America and the whole world of people.  God wants His children to be peacemakers wherever they are.
We need to hear God as He speaks through the Apostle Peter in Acts 10:34-35 “Then Peter began to speak: I now realize
how true it is that God does not show favoritism, but accepts men from every nation who fear Him and do what is right.”

  1. Thanks, Max. I will probably re-post, but I will give you credit.
