Its true I might only be a "mere woman"
that there might not be much that I could do
but I can tell you this one thing for certain
I'm a great fan of the grande red, white and blue.

I believe in what old glory stands for
you'd never hear me put her honor down
I'd be more than willing to do my share
to defend this, our beloved ground.

I'm just a small part of this great country
yep, a real true blue patriotic madame
you bet I'd serve this country of freedom
with pride I'd say sign me up Uncle Sam!!

(smiles) Oh Doa, this is soooooo beautifully patriotic, sweet friend, Uncle Sam will always be happy to have a faithful daughter like you as we are all His children and he promises us freedom and liberty! (kiss on cheek) This is powerful, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Donna, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

This is a sweet poem with a wonderful sentiment behind it.
We have changed so much from the sixties and seventies, when patriotism just seemed to be so out of style...and its so good to see it back again...
I never thought I would say that...
I was the worst protester and the biggest hippie of all.

sitting here waving my flag and thanking you all.  PDV, thank YOU for the link.
Lyra honey, you were doing your thing, aint that what it's all about.  Hmm.....searching for that big peace sign to put in here as a reminder that we should all believe in peace, and having no luck finding it.....lol......
Peaceful hugs to all.
