I Pledge Allegiance

I have been musing over the pledge for a few weeks now. The more I think about it the more the impact of its words hit me. and I feel that not everyone has felt this way.

For many years children and adults have said the pledge of allegiance. Most of us can recite this with little or no thought and do not always pay attention to what we are saying, as we have said it so many times in our life. I say lets look at this today.

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.

The words of this Pledge hold power when read. They hold conviction, or should when recited. you are pledging loyalty and fidelity to your country, government, and fellow citizens.

You are saying that you are fully for this county. you are for the government, and the people. You are proclaiming that this country will not split and we will have freedom and justice for all.

I think that once you get to actually know the pledge, and understand what it is asking of you. you will find a better love for your country.

hey I don’t believe in God, you may say. well it has really only been in recent years that “under God” has been in the pledge and it is optional under freedom of speech to have it in there. as for me I will keep it in my recital.

what are your thoughts on this?
