Pledge Of Allegiance

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.

 

I pledge allegiance to the flag
What do those words mean to you? To me they say, "Thank you America for your courage, your strength, your freedom which has been a beacon to the world for two hundred years.

Of the United States Of America
Who's bright stars are fifty states, each bearing it's own stamp of individuality. People, two hundred million strong. People, who have come to her from all corners of the earth.

And to the republic for which it stands
A land of laws. An ingenious system of checks and balances that allows no man to become a tyrant, and lets no group prevail if their power is not tempered for a real concern for the government. A land where the right of dissent and free speech is jealously guarded. Where the ballot box is the sword, and the people it's weilder.

One nation under God
A land where freedom of worship is the cornerstone of her being. A land great with temples and churches. Synagogues and alters that rise in profusion to embrace all the religions of the world.

Indivisible
A land forged by the hot steel of raw courage, conformed forever by the awful results of civil war.

With liberty
Where a man, in pursuit of an honest life will not be denied his chance. Where her citizens move freely within her vast borders, without hindrance or fear. A land brimming with opportunity, where freedom of choice is the guideline for all.

And justice
The courts of our land are open to all. It's wheels of justice grind for all causes, all people. They look to every avenue for justice . Every concern of the law. And they temper their reasoning with mercy.

FOR ALL
