STARS AND STRIPESSeven stripes of red bars on Old Glory signify the blood shed by those brave soldiers who gave their lives so wecould be free and not enslaved as many nations inthe world today. It remains the greatest sacrifice one can make to keep America free. It is an act of love:no tyrant can lay claim to the heart and soul of us.Six stripes of white bars represents the purityof America’s intentions when engaged in acts of warto not allow the white to be sullied with selfish motivesbut rather with a noble conviction that all should be free,that all citizens take pride in the nation that they love.The memory of all Americans is woven in this flag. #
