What does the American flag mean to me?
American flag you mean so much to me
Like freedom, peace, and liberty.
I have a flag folded in a triangle display
That I walk by and look at everyday.
This flag belonged to a special man
Who wasn’t afraid to fight in a foreign land.
So many soldiers lost their lives over the years
The flags draped over their coffins soak up the tears.
I am proud to live in a country that’s free
