“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”

The Talking Flag
Over two hundred years ago, I, your American flag was created. Since then I have flown through wars, waved over parades, and hung from the walls of churches, homes and schools. All this time, I have been your silent symbol of freedom and opportunity, but, now I’m talking!
See my red stripes! I got those from the blood of brave patriots that died fighting for freedom. Red, Yellow, Black and White; They fought and died so you could be free. See my white stripes! I got those from faith honesty and justice. The faith of your forefathers as they trusted GOD and found freedom. And the honest thoughts and deeds of good people as they dealt justly with each other. Now, look at my blue field and gleaming starts. It’s almost Heavenly, and it should be, because, I your American Flag, hang above the actions of men, but, beneath the heavens of the Almighty GOD. I have a star for each state, and a state for any man. But, theirs only one blue field of union an brotherhood for every state and every man!
Oh, I hurt, when they trample me, or burn me, or some patriot dies because they believed all people should be free, I can take it though, because, other patriots will hang me high again, and you will see me waving my message of freedom and opportunity, over this great land!.

To The Soldier
To the soldier that’s still living,
who holds their head up high.
To the soldier who still breaks down
and sometimes has to cry.
To the ones who came home maimed
who learned a whole new life.
To the ones who seemed unharmed
who’ve been through hell and strife.
To the ones who’ve been forgotten
to the ones who are unloved.
To the ones who end their pain
to the ones who have went insane.
I want to tell you something
Something you need to know.
Us civilians we do care
Sometimes it’s hard to show.
For how do we thank a soldier?
How can we do it right?
How can we show our hearts?
With all our very might?
I realize there are people
who will never really care.
let’s overlook them now
Like there not even there.
Listen to those who love you
who are grateful you’re alive.
Who are so proud of you
and grateful for your life.
God grant the life ahead of you
filled with days of peace.
God grant you let go of sadness
and give you a great release.
I’m so proud to be an American
I ’ll never know what you’ve done.
For this country you have fought
for this country you have won.
