"Today as we gather, let's all keep in mind our flag and the meaning for us to find"
"The red is for the blood of Americans true, who gladly have given their lives for you"
"The white is for unity, in both thought and deed, a rule of conduct we all should heed"
"The blue is for justice for all, not just one, a freedom we fought for and early won"
"The stars are a symbol of God's guiding hand, over the union of this mighty land"
"There isn't an American our flag won't protect. Let us all now unite to show our respect."

Join us now as our colors are retired. Let us sing TAPS."
