I Pledge Allegiance!
Most mornings while driving to work, I listen to a local radio station who invites various elementary classes to recite the Pledge of Allegiance; I remember doing the same thing when I was in grade school. The hopefulness that is heard in the innocent voices of these children as they utter these age old words can’t help but leave you feeling very blessed to live in America!
The Privilege Of Being Able To Say The Pledge Of Allegiance!
I find it such a privilege to be able stand while placing my hand over my heart and say the Pledge of Allegiance in honor of America’s flag and the wonderful freedoms we enjoy here!
I pledge (v. solemnly promising to a significant undertaking) allegiance (n. a loyal commitment)
to the flag (n. a piece of cloth used as a sacred symbol or emblem of a country)
of the United States Of America (n. a federal republic comprised of 50 states that originated in the American War of Independence and the successful ascension over British rule)
and to the Republic for which it stands (n. a form of government in which power is explicitly vested in the people, who in turn exercise their power through elected representatives)
one nation (n. an organized body of people) under God (n. a divine being, perfect in power, wisdom and goodness)
indivisible (adj. impossible to divide or separate) with liberty (n. the state of being free)
and justice (n. genuine concern and respect for people) for all!
May you all enjoy a very blessed 4th of July!
What gives you the “patriotic chills”?
