SETTING: Room is darkened, Pack flag and 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 Rever 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 Kings 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 though all her history.

I am America's heritage. (As narrator finishes, volume of background music is turned up)
