Flags, Fourth & Finery

 "The whole inspiration of our life as a nation flows out from the waving folds of this banner." ~Anonymous
 Time and again, when I see a flag, the red, white and blue...
 old or new, worn and faded, or crisp and bright...
 I feel that patriotic stir...
 the swell of The Star Spangled Banner in my ears...
 the whisper of history in the breeze...
 that calls for gathering together family and friends...
 to celebrate the land of the free...
 and the home of the brave...
I hope your 4th of July was a time of freedom and pride for you and yours and 
our home sweet home...
"Your Flag and my flag,
The Flag that flies above;
The nation where we work and live,
The country that we love."
