SETTING: Room is darkened, Pack flag and an American flag are spotlighted. Patriotic background music is played.
NARRATOR: There it is. It's still flying. It has been a long night and as the dawn appears and the smoke clears, it is fluttering in the breeze.
I am the American Revolution and the valiant patriots who lost their lives that this nation might live.
I am Paul Revere and his midnight ride.
I am Nathan Hale and his stand for freedom.
I am George Washington crossing the Delaware.
I am the Boston Tea Party and Bunker Hill.
I am King's fountain and Milford Courthouse.
I am the Constitution of the United States, the Bill of Rights, and the symbol of religious freedom.
I am the War of 1812 and the Mexican War.
I am the Alamo and the Battle of Bull Run.
I am the Battle of Vicksburg and the blood and torment of the Civil War.
I am the Monroe Doctrine and the Spanish American War.
I am World War I and the depression of 1929.
I am Pearl Harbor, World War II, the Korean conflict, and Vietnam. I am the pain and sorrow, the happiness and joy of bygone days. I have seen poverty and wealth, dread and anticipation, hate, and love. I have seen America through all her history.
I am America's heritage. (As the narrator finishes, the volume of background music is turned up)
