Of Country Love and Pride



 Zoomed by this fantastic flag-display in rush-hour traffic
 in Charlottetown PEI

Country; more than mud and asphalt
Country; flesh and blood of We
Country; contingent upon the
Commonwealth of family

Country; more than demographics
Country; more than war-fought fame
Country; more than sea of faces
For each face comes with a name

And each name comes with a purpose
And each purpose comes with pride
Pride and love for life and country
Like those who loved both and died
