Our


on January 14, 1969

"I've been listening to you boys and girls recite the Pledge of Allegiance all semester and it seems as though it is becoming monotonous to you.

If I may, may I recite it and try to explain to you the meaning of each word?"
I

 

 

Me, an individual, a committee of one.

 

Pledge

 

 

Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity.

 

Allegiance

 

 

My love and my devotion.

 

To the flag

 

 

Our standard, Old Glory, a symbol of freedom. Wherever she waves, there's respect because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts freedom is everybody's job!

 

United

 

 

That means that we have all come together.

 

States

 

 

Individual communities that have united into 48 great  states. Forty-eight individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose; all divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common purpose, and that's love for country.

 

And to the
Republic

 

 

A state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.

 

For which it stands, one 
nation

 

 

 

 

One nation, meaning
 "so
blessed by God"

 

 

 

 

Indivisible

 

 

Incapable of being divided.

 

With Liberty

 

 

Which is freedom -- the right of power to live one's own life without threats, fear or some sort of  retaliation.

 

And Justice

 

 

The principle or quality of dealing fairly with others.

 

For All

 

 

Which means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is mine.

 

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America,
 and to The Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, 
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our country and two words have been added to the pledge of Allegiance...

Under God Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer and that would be eliminated from schools too?
