The Flag was Still There


“Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed…” [Dwight D. Eisenhower]

“We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” [Abraham Lincoln]

“And still we can see, as the years have gone by,
there’s a dream in our land like a flame that keeps burning.
And the lantern of hope from the harbor still shines.
Those who seek freedom’s dream to its light are still turning.
Now we look to the skies, and we lift up our eyes,
for we know with the dawn we will see our flag rise,
see it rise!”
