Red, White, and Blue!

Julia about 5 months old. It was Memorial Day Weekend
What do the colors in the American flag stand for?  What is the meaning behind the stars and the stripes?

Red is for...

*Hardiness and valor
*Red represents the blood spilled protecting our home
*Red: signifies bravery
*Red is for the blood of the patriots and those that fight for our country

White is for...                       Blue is for...
* Purity and innocence      * Vigilance, perseverance, and justice
* freedom                           * The color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes)

Thank you for all the men and women who give up so much so that we can enjoy being free here in America!  God bless this land that I love!  The home of the free and the brave!
