The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by minister Francis Bellamy. The Pledge was originally meant as a military salute to the Flag. As years went on, it evolved into a way of teaching young children, especially those of immigrant’s, the loyalty to the United States of America.
For as long as I can remember each school day started with everyone standing, putting your hand over your heart and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. As young children we may not have truly understood what each of those words meant! Today as an adult, in the world in which we are living now, it seems more like a prayer vs a pledge!
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
Today we need to remember these words we have been reciting for years! We are One Nation, Under God – We are Indivisible, unable to be divided or separated, We are all promised a life with Liberty and Justice for All!
God Bless all of the lives lost to senseless violence!
God Bless America!
