[MOL] Something Gooooood --- from chris

Pledge of Allegiance				http://www.2xtreme.net/roberta/html/flag.html
by Red Skelton

Me, and individual, a committee of one. 

Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity. 

My love and my devotion. 

To the Flag: 
Our standard; Old Glory ; a symbol of Freedom; wherever she waves there is
respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, Freedom is
everybody's job. 

That means that we have all come together. 

Individual communities that have united into forty-eight 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 is love
for country. 

And to the Republic: 
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. 

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 qualities, of dealing fairly with others. 

For All: 
For All - which means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is

And now, boys and girls, let me hear you recite the Pledge of Allegiance: 

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the
for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for

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 it's a prayer, and it would be eliminated from
schools, too?
