A Toast To The Flag
John J. Daly (1917)
Here’s to the red of it—There’s not a thread of it, No, nor a shred of it, In all the spread of it, From foot to head, But heroes bled for it, Faced steel and lead for it, Precious blood shed for it, Bathing it Red!
Here’s to the white of it—Thrilled by the sight of it, Who knows the right of it, But feels the might of it, Through day and night? Womanhood’s care for it, Made manhood dare for it, Purity’s prayer for it, Keeps it so white!
Here’s to the blue of it—Beauteous view of it, Heavenly hue of it, Star-spangled dew of it, Constant and true; Diadem gleam for it, States stand supreme for it, Liberty’s beam for it, Brightens the blue!
Here’s to the whole of it—Stars, stripes and pole of it, Body and soul of it, O, and the roll of it, Sun shining through; Hearts in accord for it, Swear by the sword for it, Thanking the Lord for it, Red White and Blue!

The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.George Washington
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.Anne Frank
Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.Albert Einstein
