Video: I Cried When I Watched Super Bowl LIV ‘Ragged Old Flag’ Tribute By Johnny Cash And Here’s Why


I pledge allegiance to the flag of The United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Johnny Cash was hands down the most badass country singer in history!

I cried, and I am not ashamed to let anyone know because I love my flag, and I hate that citizens in this country continue to disrespect her.

I’m a very proud Veteran, and I love that flag more than words can say. No matter where I was deployed, I always had our flag there. My oath of enlistment will end when I die ( United States Air Force, 1987-1995 and served in Operation Desert Storm/Shield). I love my country, dearly, and I fought hard for it. I hope I made a difference; I tried my heart out too.

Anyone who hates that flag, hate the millions who died to protect them. Think about that. Men and women with families and dreams died to protect your rights to speak your mind. And just because you want to say something wretched and nasty about this country, doesn’t mean you should.

I get chills when Johnny says, “because she’s been through the fire before, and I believe she can take a lot more.” I love this country, and I love my fellow Americans who feel the same way as me.

I think that every American should listen to this song, and if they don’t feel proud and have a tear in their eye, maybe they should think about not considering themselves American.

This right here is why I’m not only proud to be American. I’m damn proud of every soldier that has ever fought and died for that “ragged old flag.” This should be our national anthem.

I don’t know about you but I wish it were still those times. May have not been any better than today, but at least families were closer and stronger or that’s just how I feel, people are way too into technology, and not out in the real world.

We are lucky to live in this great country. I am so sick of everyone protesting this or that. We need a day of no protest, where we should all appreciate the fact that we are Americans first and agree to disagree peacefully and politely! We need peace.

RIP all brave men and women that died defending Old Glory.

It makes me tear up every time.
