Meaning of the Flag Draped Coffin
 
 
All  Americans should be given this lesson.  Those who think that  America is an arrogant nation should really reconsider that  thought.

Our founding fathers used GOD's word and teachings  to establish our Great Nation. This is a critical time for American and Americans must re-educate themselves about the precious traditions of this Nation's history.

Please pass this along. Please be proud of the country we live in and even more proud and reverant of those who serve to protect our 'GOD GIVEN' rights and  freedoms.
 

Take the time to read this.  Understand what  the flag draped coffin really means. Here is how to understand the flag that laid upon it and is surrendered to  so many widows and  widowers.

Do  you know that at military funerals, the 21-gun salute stands for  the sum of the numbers in the year  1776?
 
 

Have you ever noticed the honor guard pays meticulous attention to correctly folding the United States of America Flag13 times?  You probably thought it was to symbolize the original 13 colonies, but we learn something new every day!

The 1st fold of the flag is a symbol of  life.

 
 

The 2nd fold is a symbol of the belief in eternal life.

 
 
The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing  the ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of the country to attain peace throughout the  world.
 
 
The 4th fold represents the weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as  well as in time of war for His divine guidance.
 
 
The 5th fold is a tribute to the country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, 'Our Country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.'
 
 
The 6th fold is for where people's hearts lie.  It is with their heart that they pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States Of America, and the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.
 
 
The 7th fold is a tribute to its Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed  Forces that they protect their country and their flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of their republic.
 
 
The 8th fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of  day.
 
 
The 9th fold is a tribute to womanhood, and Mothers.  For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded.
 
 
The 10th fold is a tribute to the father, for he, too, has given his  sons and daughters for the defense of their country since they were first born.
The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.
 
 
The 13th fold, or when the flag is completely folded, the stars are  uppermost reminding them of their nations motto, 'In God We Trust.'
 
After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the Sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for them the rights, privileges and freedoms they enjoy  today.
 
There are some traditions and ways of doing things that have deep  meaning.  In the future, you'll see flags folded and now you will know why.

Please share this with the children you love and all others who love what is referred to, the symbol of ' Liberty and  Freedom.'
 
 
Perhaps the Supreme Court should read this explanation before they render their decision on the Pledge of Allegiance. Keep forwarding this in emails, in letters and make a page on your website to revere our troops, our flag, our country and our God.

It may be your posting that someone with political power or financial influence will see and it will make the difference to turn the ship of state around ... heading it back to God's law.
