Why do we have our flag? We have our flag because it honors soldiers. We help people that are hurt. Soldiers risk their life going out there and save people that are hurt. America is happy to have our flag still till this day. We respect our flag in many ways. First, we don’t harm the flag. Next, we don’t print it on anything. Then, we know it is cloth but always respect our flag. Finally, we don’t write on it or put any colors on our flag. We have many heroes in America. First, our soldiers, they save people and risk their life every day going out in the war or battle and we thank them for that. We want to be safe and the solders can to that.
First I would like to include some information about our american flag and how it came about. In the British colonies of North America before the Revolution, each of the 13 colonies had its flag. On Jan. 2, 1776, the first flag of the United States was raised at Cambridge, Mass., by George Washington. Known as the Grand Union flag, it consisted of 13 stripes, alternate red and white, with a blue canton bearing the crosses of St. George and St. Andrew. Congress, on June 14, 1777, enacted a resolution “that the Flag of the United States be 13 stripes alternate red and white, that the Union be 13 stars white in a blue field representing a new constellation.” On Jan. 13, 1794, Vermont and Kentucky having been admitted to the Union,
The very first flag for the United States to have was the Grand Union Flag, in the years 1775-1777. The design of this flag was thirteen red and white stripes, with the red cross of St. Georgia, England along with the white cross of St. Andrew, Scotland in a blue field. The final split between the between the colonies and Great Britain brought the removal of the British Union from our flag. Shortly after came the stars on a blue field. By June 14, 1777 the Flag Resolution was passed, which is now known as Flag Day. Which basically said that the United States flag had to have thirteen stripes being red and white; that the union have 13 stars that are white with a blue field. Then, came Francis Hopkinsons design of the United States Flag.

“O’er the land of the free,” our national anthem sings, stating our freedom. America’s flag demonstrates our freedom, as well as our veterans and also has represented guidance. What does America’s flag mean to you? It means a lot to me representing America’s wonderful characteristics. Although, the flag may have gone through hardships, it still stands tall, bold, and wonderful. Now, think about the flags meaning, purpose, and wonders as we take a step forward to learn our wondrous banner’s characteristics in my eyes.
Raising the Flag September 11, 2001 was when the world thought it was over. Just by raising the flag from the ground, it changed the image of America. Not only did the world suffer in fear, families from all over America lost loved ones in this tragedy. Every day, there are cops, firefighters, soldiers, etc., who put their lives on the line to protect citizens and their freedom from the ones who try to destroy that. On this day, thousands of citizens watched their fears happen right in front of their eyes, while the heroes on the ground stood in danger to save the innocent people. This picture represents heroic symbolism of men and women whose lives will never be forgotten. Even with all the hate in the world, the United States still keeps its ground by standing as one, keeping the flag raised to show we can overcome any adversity, a symbolism of freedom, and religion/skin color does not define us.
The flag has many rumors, myths, and legends surrounding it, and I would like to clear some of them up. I believe that the United States is the best country in the world, and it shows by the beacon of hope that flag represents.
The first televised presidential debate occurred 1960 between democratic candidate John F. Kennedy and republican candidate Richard Nixon. This debate was an incredibly special event to take place in the United States as it was, in fact, the first televised debate that American citizens could watch, instead of listening to fireside chats and radio shows. Because JFK and Nixon appeared on television, appearance became a larger factor in who the American people would choose as the next President. Moreover, media exposure started to play a larger role in the democratic process as a result of the televised 1960 debate. Overall, because of these reasons, this debate was seen as one of the most iconic presidential debates to be held in America.
Chances are Flag Day isn’t as widely celebrated in your home or office as the 4th of July or Memorial Day. Nonetheless, it’s still a neat holiday to rally behind.
According to Kathy Gallagher from in an article for the New York Times, “ I think showing respect is something that should never be ignored when teaching young people some of value their elders have had” (qtd. in Longman). Being in high school, students are expected to recite the pledge of allegiance everyday, but, still many do not. They figure the fact that there is men and women that risk their lives for others. Therefore, pledging the flag should be mandatory because it teaches the youth the meaning of respect, unifies the country, and is not imposed but requested.
The American flag have mutiple means to me. It means justice, leadership, opportunity, and delusional. The flag remind me of justice; in America jjustice is a big part of us. People say we government the world, but who else will do so. We ensure people around the world have a fair chance no matter what race, or nationality they are. We treat them with respect and as human nothing below that; we are the peace keepers. This is why I also think the flag represent leadership as well. We do thing that no one wants to do, we do it because we understand, our history shows that. We been treated unfairly by the british, so we fled and made our own country that stand on its own. during the first world war when Europe was badly dameged during world war 2, we help them rebuild.
Good morning ma'am, yesterday we were talking about possibly having LtCol. Richardson taking over Cadet Commander for the summer. Since, I could not stay long because Dominic was waiting I did not get a chance to discuss with you the idea I had after the meeting.
First, thank you for your service! I agree with you completely! We'll have two seat up for grabs this year. Jeff Starsky, whose served four terms (16 years) and Ernie Sheldon whose served two terms. I've lived in Folsom since 1989, graduated Folsom High and am now a National Account Security Manager. I've learned a lot about this city and I'm ready to service the Folsom residents. I bring a tremendous amount of energy, innovation and tactics our current leaders doesn't have. My goal is to integrate the positives attributes I have, into our council and engage a whole new demographic that's non-exist in Folsom politics. That means working together and learning from current leadership as well.
It was a beautiful day in Dallas, Texas. The sun was out, a nice crisp breeze drifting through the air. It was a few days before John F. Kennedy, who is the current president, would drive down in Dealey Plaza in front of everyone. John F. Kennedy was a boy
Flags is very important to me, it means so much and I’ve learned a lot. I practice when I can and I’ve developed many friendships, and strengthened some through it. I really love it, the 6 foot poles, the sabres, and the rifles. For Christmas I would like to have new silks for my flag. It would be very effective and helpful. I would have them for future performances, and to replace my old one.
