Here is another version:
I am the symbol of the living America, the badge of its greatness, the emblem of
I am faith. It is I who keep men mindful of their priceless heritage, life, libe
rty, and the right to pursue happiness.
I am hope. I represent the land of promise wherein, already, man's
loftiest dreams have approached closer to realization than ever
before on this earth.
I am life. Each strand and fiber of my being is a memorial, dedicated
to the sacrifices of all those strong men and steadfast
women who have lived and died in the nation's service, that it might
I am tolerance. So long as I shall wave, all people under my protection
may freely worship, think, write and speak, undaunted by
the shadow of fear.
I am justice, tempered with mercy. For I am friend to the oppressed and
downtrodden of every land.
I am a sign of the future. I wave over schools throughout the nation and
in them the nation's future is molded.
I am the flag of the United States... the last... the best hope for peace
