Old Glory

Listen Carefully To The Pledge Of Allegience

"America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our country."

Red Skelton's Pledge of Allegiance

Red Skelton 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

Red Skelton's Pledge Of Allegiance To The Flag

red1.jpg (20154 bytes) Red Skelton we miss you!!!

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.

United - That means that we have all come together.

States - 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.

For which it stands- And government is the people; and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.

One Nation Under God - 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 - For All--which means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is mine.
