Resolution would have kids recite official flag salute

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A joint resolution in Tuesday's Senate session wants school children to know and recite the first official flag salute.

"Three white stars on a field of blue
God keep them strong and ever true
It is with pride and love that we
Salute the Flag of Tennessee."

According to Tennessee's official state website, Lucy Steele Harrison wrote the first official salute, and the state adopted it in 1981.
