"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." You've recited it before. The Pledge of Allegiance is an American institution. It's statement that professes our love for our homeland and the people who live in it. It's a reminder that we are ONE people sharing this land. Never forget that. Let the Pledge remind you every time you begin to doubt how things are. Our similarities hold much more weight than our differences.
