I am saddened and heart broken by those who are apologizing for standing up for “Old Glory.”
The United States flag has been the symbol of freedom and hope around the world.
The United States has been the first to respond when natural disasters have hit nations around the world.
The United States has been the defender of freedom and liberty when despots and dictators sought to build oppressive empires.
When we have had to destroy cities and economies in the process of defeating those forces we have financed their recovery and helped rebuild their cities, like Germany after WWII.
We have not been without mistakes at home. We have made earnest efforts to correct those mistakes and to enshrine the freedoms and liberties of every citizen.
The heart of man is sinful and desperately wicked.
That is why Jesus Christ died on the cross, to redeem the heart of each person and to give them a heart of love, mercy, and grace, like His own.
Until we see every human in the United States redeemed through the blood of Jesus Christ, we will not see a perfect nation, with perfect freedom, and perfect liberty.
There will be sinful behavior by men and women of all colors, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
No we are not a perfect nation.
We are not a nation free from faults; but we are the most free nation on the earth; with the greatest Constitution that is like no other in history of mankind.
That guarantees the freedoms and liberties of all men and women of all races and colors.
I proudly wore the uniform of her armed forces and pledged to defend her Constitution and her citizens against belligerence from without and from within.
I have not with drawn that pledge and would gladly wear her uniform again and fight for this Constitution and the liberties it guarantees.
For that, I stand when the flag is raised and lowered. I cover my heart and pledge allegiance. I sing her national anthem and get tears in my eyes, every time.
I am grieved by those who are pressured by cultural bias to be embarrassed and ashamed for honoring and loving this great nation.
I will not apologize for loving, honoring, and flying the flag of the United States of America.
Thank you first of all for serving our country and doing it with pride. I love and agree full heartedly with what you said in this article. God bless you!
