Red, White, and Blue

By , Austin, TX
The colors of justice,
of independence,
of hope.
Fifty stars representing our unity.
Thirteen stripes to remind us of the courage
of our nation’s forefathers.
Our friends and family
fight to protect the meaning of this icon.
In May, 1776, did Betsy Ross realize that
she was laying the cornerstone
for an emblem that would represent the very principals
this nation was based upon?

Some may say it’s only fabric.
But I believe
it is inspiration.
