I Pledge Allegiance

One evening on the late Red Skelton's TV program,
he Talked about the Pledge of Allegiance.
Red is going to explain the true meaning of each word.
Please listen to him speaking carefully, as it'll deeply touch your heart.


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?

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
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?

God Bless America!
