I just looked at my calendar and suddenly realized that today is Flag Day. Hurrah!
I think George M. Cohan said it best:
You’re a grand old flag.
You’re a high-flying flag.
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of
the land I love,
the home of the free and the brave!
Every heart beats true
for the red, white, and blue.
Where there’s never a boast or brag!
But should old acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on that
Grand Old Flag!
