Reader shares words for day of remembrance

It seems appropriate to me, being an American, on this day of remembrance, to cite the words of William Tyler Page, when he penned “The American’s Creed”:

“I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of  the governed: a democracy in a republic: a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.”

With thanks to The American Legion for their publication “Flag of the United States — The Living Symbol of Our Great Republic. How to Display it, How to Respect it” from whence this quote was taken.
