Hurrah for the flag of the free!
May it wave as our standard forever,
The gem of the land and the sea,
The banner of the right.
Let despots remember the day
When our fathers with mighty endeavor
Proclaimed as they marched to the fray
That by their might and by their right
It waves forever.
And please, to all who are or may be in the path of Hurricane Ike -
GET TO DRY LAND - as soon and as safely as you can.
