In a world of change,

I stand by one banner,

red, white, and blue flash above me,

a silent reminder they carry,

red stripes to honor those who died to hold us together,

white stripes to savor the peace they bought,

all under the blue star filled sky,

of the present, past, and future,

the stars never changing,

forever standing and united in their place,

to remind all of the stability of unity,

that has never faltered,

in the war strewn past,

or the uneasy peace of the future,

together we stand,

all stars of one sky,

forever united.
