Optimist Flag Day Celebration at Children’s Home Society

The Sioux Valley Optimist Club and the Children’s Home Society held a Flag Day Celebration and the CHS students shared found poetry relating to the United States of America and were asked look into their heart and reflect on what the American flag meant to them. We would like to share some of the great messages the students had for us:

AYDEN
A structure of law and society in the U.S. Together to establish a purpose of harmony.

EVAN:
To me, the American Flag means freedom.  It reminds me of the people who fought for us.  It also reminds me of the United States.  It means hope for the future.  Red means the blood shed in war.  Blue means the night sky.  White means the purity in the United States of America.  It reminds me of the United States because of the colors.  It means hope for the future because we are free.

PAIGE:
The American flag means freedom and hope.  When I look at the flag, I think of all the people who died and risked their lives for me.  I’m thankful for the flag because it gave the soldiers couorage to fight.  It gave them courage by reminding them that what they were fighting for.  The designed the flag to have 50 stars to represent the 50 states, and 13 stripes to represent the 13 colonies.  That;s what the flag means to me.

TAYNE:
To me, the American fag means freedom, family, and God.  When there is something like a natural disaster, help is always there when you need it.   The hope of this country comes from the people who fought for us and never gave up no matter how hard the battle was.  The red stripes stand for the blood of those who fought.  The white stripes stand for the life that the veterans gave us.  The stars stand for the nights they fought through.

KADI:
The American flag is important to me because it reminds me that there were people who fought for us.   There are still people fighting for us.  Some people just think of freedom when they see the flag.. The flag does  symbolize freedom, but there’s so much more to the flag.   Many people are still fighting for us, protecting us, and looking out for us.  Soldiers, firemen, police officers, judges, and teachers all help to protect us.. Thanks to all of those people for being brand and helping us.

Thank you to the Children’s Home Society students for helping make the Flag Day Celebration a huge success!
