(Before It's News)

Very Moving!
Our Pledge
” Said.. like none other!

Red Skelton’s Pledge:

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?”
—–cont
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 – 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.
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?

  • Ahem

    Does your god support a country that kills its own citizens with drones?
    Does your god support a country that kills its own citizens by taking down three of the worlds tallest buildings under false pretense?
    Does your god support a country that props another in the Middle East as a result of corrupt politicians and overt racism?
    Does your god support a country that unfairly enriches its elite at the expense of its poor?

    If not, take god out of the pledge, or take the pledge out of our schools.

      Those for the most part those in government are not from or about GOD they are from the sinagog of satin, the illuminati, the bildiburge they have come to crush us. We the people are about GOD and we shall prevale and we shall overcome the tyrany which they are pressing upon us. WE THE PEOPLE OF GOD SHALL WIN IN THE END……Keep your powder dry and be ready for the long fight.
