I Pledge Allegiance . . .

Today I renewed my Patriotism by signing the Pledge of Allegiance here. The goal is 4,000,000 signees (is that the proper term?). So far, about 440,000 have signed.


While I'm at it:
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

I went to Catholic school all my life, so I always, without thought, end the Pledge of Allegiance with an "Amen." I do see the Pledge as a sort of prayer to God, in hopes that He will help us remain "one Nation" under Him, undividable, with freedom and truth for everyone. I pray every day that we can remain true to the Pledge. Amen.
