"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 know many do not feel the pledge of allegiance is for all...and so they will not recite it or stand.
But as I stood to pledge every day at school this year...
I thought of it this way.
I will pledge to seek liberty and justice for all.
I will pledge to desire that for all people.
I will pledge my heart to unity and liberty and justice for all.
It is a statement of intent to me.
It is my starting place.
I will not throw the baby out with the bathwater.
There is too much good.
