As we pay our respect to the fallen during 9/11, thought I'd share this great toast to Old Glory:

Here is to the Red of it, there's not a thread of it, no nor a shred of it in all the spread of it from foot to head, but heroes bled for it, faced steel and lead for it, precious blood shed for it, bathing it red

Here is to the white of it, thrilled by the sight of it, who knows the right of it, but feels the might of it, through day and night, womanhood's care for it, made manhood dare for it, purity's payer for it, keeps it so white

Here is to the blue of it, beauteous view of it, heavenly hue of it, star-spangled dew of it, constant and true, diadems gleam for it, states stand supreme for it, liberty's beam for it, brightens the blue.

Here is to the whole of it, stars, stripes and pole of it, body and soul of it, O, and the roll of it, sun shining through. Hearts in accord for it, swear by the sword for it, thanking the Lord for it, Red, White, and Blue.
