I Pledge Allegiance

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?


Me, an individual, a committee of one.


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


My love and my devotion.


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!


That means that we have all come together.


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.


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.


One nation, meaning "so blessed by GOD"


Incapable of being divided.


Which is freedom.. the right of power to live one's

own life without threats, fear or some sort of retaliation.


the principle or quality of dealing fairly with others.


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...


Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said that is a

prayer and that would be eliminated from schools too?


God Bless America !
