A NEW Poem about OLD Glory

What does Francis Scott Key have to do with Flag Day?…

This article posted the day AFTER Flag Day, so mark your calendar now for June 14, 2019, the next Flag Day in the United States . . . and put out your flag this July 4!

Francis Key
would help us see
this is a banner day.
For he would bring
a means to sing
of that for which we prayed.

This Key unlocked
a means to talk
about what makes us free:
The untold price
of sacrifice
that bought our liberty.

Happy Flag Day!
