I am the flag of the United States of America.
My name is Old Glory.
I fly atop the world's tallest buildings.
I stand watch in America's halls of justice.
I fly majestically over institutions of learning.
I stand guard with power in the world.
Look up and see me.
I'm here because men and women of the United
States military have given their lives for my freedom.
I am not here tonight because Sheryl Crowe, Rosie O'Donnell,
Martin Sheen, George Clooney, Jane Fonda or Phil
Donahue, sacrificed their lives for me.
