The One Voice Children’s Choir (OVCC) together with Follow the Flag (FTF) encourages patriotism all around the world as we strive to become a more unified global community. The song “America the Beautiful” is a timeless classic. Filmed in Pleasant Grove, Utah in Grove Creek Canyon. The flag, “Big Betsy” is cared for by the Follow the Flag (FTF) organization. FTF is committed to strengthening patriotism and unifying communities across America. “Big Betsy” spans across a 600 foot canyon wall. The feelings standing under that flag at the base of a beautiful mountain are palpable. It becomes a hallowed place. Mothers of fallen soldiers have stood beneath the waving flag and wept. Veterans stood in silence with hands over their hearts, tears streaming down their faces. Most importantly, children were absolutely inspired and excited by the sight. Each one of us has the responsibility to be courageous, to speak out, to have hope, and to inspire patriotism by reaching out and serving those around us. Special Thanks to Kyle Fox, Ron Nix and the Follow the Flag team. To find out more about FTF visit their website at http://followtheflag.org/ or find them on Facebook.
