I came up with this in the car the other day, so if it doesn't really make sense at the end, sorry. :/ XD

Our America

December 16, 2018


The sky was gloomy and gray. Rain pounded dully from the sky, causing the windshield wipers on the car to sweep back and forth constantly. I gazed out the window uninterested, until a sight caught my eye. Our American flag, lowered to half mast, and billowing in the wind. My heart seemed to lift as the sight. Not the fact that it was at half mast, but the fact that it still waved at half mast, as if in defiance, that no matter how much people beat us down, we would still stand. God has given us this land, and it is our duty to protect it, and the people in it. Our flag will wave as a symbol of We the People, and we will fight to uphold our promises and to protect our America.
