Old Glory


It flies high, yet has no wings, it’s message loud and clear.
Bless those who still salute it. True Americans hold it dear.
Through many battles, wars and strife, it stood when others fell.
Though battle-torn and badly worn, what stories it could tell.

The blood of those who gave their all, have soaked into its stripes.
With hardiness and much valor, true heroes gave their lives.
Their vigilence and perseverance is represented by its blue.
It also stands for justice, and freedom for me and you.

Its white stands for purity, the color worn by brides.
No stain of shame shall touch its face, or else in vain they’ve died.
Some have tread on it in protest, or sent it up in flames….
We’ll never let it touch the ground. OLD GLORY is its name!

Happy flag Day one and all!

My name is Betty Fritz. I was born and raised in Texas but have resided in Elkhart, Indiana for the last 25 years. My husband is a Hoosier so that’s how we wound up here. We have two daughters and a son plus 6 grand kids…..3 boys and 3 girls. I retired last year after working for 24 years at Elkhart Child Development Center. I’ve been writing since a teenager and have taken several writing courses. I enjoy writing short stories. I wrote a book of poems, RHYMES OF THE TIMES, which was published a few years ago. I have written countless songs, a few for which demo recordings have been made. Recently I’ve been writing blogs..most of them about my faith and things the Lord has taught me in my Christian life over the last 51 years. My inspiration comes from my personal relationship with Jesus Christ and my desire to see that my grandchildren grow up in a Christian nation. My goal is to bring glory to Him and help others to see that there is POWER in the name of JESUS!
