Your stripes, your stars, your colors bright,@06/05/2019 Carol Welch
unfurling in the breeze:
may the purity named by your white,
guide our priorities.
Renewed by inward scrutiny,
buoyed up by Power above,
thought and voices, spirit free,
courage, truth and love.
We owe to those who brought to life,
convictions it imparts:
that liberty is worth the strife,
affirming to many hearts.
As, now we raise the flag up high,
honor its principles again,
bravely fluttering against the sky,
uphold equality as then.
