Flag Day

Red=Hardiness and Valor
White=Purity and Innocence
Blue=Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice

Yes, they're only colors dyed on cloth. But it's what they represent that fills many of us with pride. Strength and determination. A willingness to stand up for what we believe in. Brave men and women have given their lives for what the simple colored cloth stands for. So you can burn it, you can spit on it, you can do whatever you want to it but you'll never kill what it represents.

"If You Want A Symbolic Gesture, Don't Burn The Flag, Wash It"
Norman Thomas
