Red Skelton's Pledge of Allegiance

I am presuming that the following is copyrighted.  I don't care.  Read it.  Remember it.  Take a copy of it so that you NEVER forget it.

As a schoolboy, one of Red Skelton’s Teachers explained the words and meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance to his class.  Skelton later wrote down, and eventually recorded, his recollection of this lecture.

It is followed by an observation of his own.

"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 is respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, “Freedom is everybody’s job”.

Of The United - - That means that we have all come together.

States of America - - Individual communities that has 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 - - a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern.  And the 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 - - 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 qualities, of dealing fairly with others.

For All - - which means, boys and girls, it’s as much your country as it is mine.

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 Republic for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
 
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?"

Red Skelton
