Words That Inspire

I learned to recite this when I was about 4 years old.  Even though I didn't fully understand the meaning of these words, over the years I have grown to love & honor what it means.
Click here for a history lesson about the pledge.
In the words of  president Theodore Roosevelt . . .
"We can have no '50-50' allegiance in this country.
 Either a man is an American and nothing else, 
or he is not an American at all."

Wishing you day of reflection . . .

That was interesting to see the minor changes through the years. I think they have it just right now.

Hi Carol! I'm visiting from Stacey's blog. When my boys were little, I would volunteer in their school some mornings. I always loved hearing all the sweet little voices reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Here in Texas, we also recite the "Texas Pledge." ;) Hope you have a wonderful week!
