I grew up saying the Pledge of Allegiance every school morning. It started my day. Even now, as my morning coffee brews, I look out my back kitchen window and look at my neighbor’s flag and say The Pledge of Allegiance. It still starts my day.
I catch myself saying the Pledge of Allegiance whenever I’m at my kitchen sink and see the flag. And I think that I say it more than any normal, sane human being. My neighbor’s flag is getting a little shabby…I might need to give him a new one, for me to enjoy.
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.
