Hey...
Has anyone heard the definition of the Pledge of Alliegence done by the late Red Skelton???? It is so powerful, and just awesome..... I would love to see that posted on the board, but wouldn't have a clue as to where I could find it. I've heard it on the radio several times and it makes me cry every time.....

ask and ye shall receive ---

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. 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.

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.

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

Denny and klcman,
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO FIND THIS!!!!!! It really is wonderful. I'm so touched that you went to the trouble. I'm printing it out and posting here at work. It's to good not to be up on the wall. Red Skelton was one of my favorites growing up, and seeing this side of him just touches my heart.
THANK YOU AGAIN!!! laugh
Debbie
