America will be of and for all the people; the law will mean not the heavy hand of power, but the even hand of justice.
Devoted love, support, and defense of one's country; national loyalty.
Our Country’s flag is our glory and pride. It stands ever as the emblem of America’s patriotism, and the symbol of our nation’s life. Its field of blue enjoins truth and integrity; its snow white stripes plead for purity and its crimson red tells the story of its cost. That flag represents America. It has ever been the touchstone of patriotism. “It was the first national flower to bloom upon the sturdy soil of American Independence; the rarest plant of liberty and the fairest wreath to flutter on the brow of freedom.”
