cheers for the red, white and blue! I really like the way this turned out! Instead of a blue bead I switched things up a bit and put a blue star.A red and white bead and I added some red, white and blue cracked beads.”Red: Red stands for courage. Many men and women have had the courage to stand up and fight for our country. They have defended our country against our enemies and many have died in the service of our country.White: White stands for purity. Purity means to do what is right. We hope and pray that our country will always stand for what is right.Blue: Blue stands for justice. When we pledge allegiance to the flag, we end with the words: “With liberty and justice for all.” That means that in our country, everyone should be treated fairly and with respect.”Show your patriotic spirit any day of the year!This bracelet has a 2 inch extender.The silver is silver plated.A portion of the profits from this and all sales unless otherwise stated go to a fund to help people pay vet bills and keep their pet.
