Saturday Centus Week167 ~ My Flag

My Flag

Though stretched at the seams and ragged, 

she proudly waves in the wind and screams I am

still here.

Many threads are woven together to form this flag.

She is a symbol of unity, bravery and freedom.

She rises out of the ashes of oppression to form 

hope and peace.

Respect her.

Support her.

Protect her.

Help mend her then give allegiance to her.

Be a thread or leave.


Thank you for stopping by.

Happy Independence Day!

I find beauty in old, tattered flags like this one.

This was wonderful. I think that it gets straight to the point and just packs that punch. The American Flag is a true beauty.
