WHY THE AMERICAN FLAG IS FOLDED 13 TIMES


First - Symbolizes life
Second - Symbolizes belief in eternal life
Third - Honors Veterans
Fourth - Reminds us that humans are weak and in need of divine guidance
Fifth - Is a tribute to our country
Sixth - Represents the love for America
Seventh - Is a tribute to the armed forces
Eighth - Honors mothers
Ninth - Honors all women
Tenth - Honors fathers
Eleventh - Symbolizes the God of the old Testament
Twelfth - Represents Christian belief in the Trinity, God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
Thirteenth - When the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost reminding us of our nation's motto, "InGod We Trust"

This was e-mailed to me from a fellow member of my church, and I wanted to share it everyone on LJ.
