On Memorial Day, 2009, I noticed no one was displaying an American flag where we lived. So, we ran out to Home Depot, purchased a US flag and put it up on our patio. Just as I finished, a breeze blew in and began to flutter our flag. I thought how beautiful it looked waving in the wind...just like a beautiful lady. Then I thought about the men and women who fought and died under her. I did a little research and found many pictures of our flag throughout history. Later that evening, I sat down in the studio and wrote a short, musical history of the American flag and called it "Lady Red, White and Blue."
