Fly High

I was taught how to care for her 
My father believed it was important to learn
Hold her just right, show her respect

Never let her touch the ground
She is to be kept clean and tatter free
Put your hand over your heart to show her love

Hold her in high regard
Many people have died fighting for her
She stands for much more than you understand

White signifies purity and innocence
Red signifies valor and bravery
Blue signifies vigilance, perseverance and justice

Let her wave proudly
Stand at the site of her and
Above all, respect her history and her meaning
