The 13th Amendment Freedom Week Flag is not by any stretch of the imagination to rival the Stars and Stripes or any other flag. It is just a symbol of the Freedom Week celebration and if anything should honor Old Glory. The author considers himself an upstanding citizen and a patriot of this country. He respects the Stars and Stripes and for the good that it represents. He pledges his allegiance to the “Flag of the United States and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation Under God with liberty and justice for all. The phrase “Under God” is the most important and what makes everything else work. The author’s first allegiance is to God, The Creator of the Heavens and the Earth, and all between. He feels that America will overcome her present problems and will regain her value to herself and to the world as long as she stays Under God.
