“You see, we got a little hole in that flag there when
Washington took it across the Delaware
And it got powder-burned the night Francis Scott Key
Sat watching it writing say can you see
And she's getting threadbare and wearing thin
But she's in good shape for the shape she's in
'Cause she's been through the fire before
And I believe she can take a whole lot more
'Cause I'm mighty proud of that ragged old flag”
These are the lyrics to Johnny Cash’s 'Ragged Old Flag'.
They speak in so many ways of American resiliency, strength, pride, determination, and honor.
‘She goes where she is asked’- we should serve our Country with pride and celebrate the men and women who fight for our freedom on the front lines every day.
With so much question in the World these last few years our flag is a reminder that through the bombs bursting in air to over the foreign lands where the Stars and Stripes have flown over our troops- one thing has remained constant: In God we trust.
Spiritiles have and always will be American Made
and American sourced.
We love our country and we are proud of where we come from!
One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
