|On his TV program, "The Red Skelton Hour", he related what his teacher, Mr. Laswell, told the class about what each word meant to the Pledge of Allegiance:|
|"I have been listening to you boys and girls recite the Pledge Of Allegiance all semester and it seems as though it's becoming monotonous to you. If I may, may I recite it and try to explain to you the meaning of each word?"|
|Me, an individual, a committee of one.|
|Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity|
|My love and my devotion|
|Our standard; Old Glory; a symbol of Freedom; wherever She waves, there's respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, "Freedom is everybody's job"!|
|Individual communities that have united into forty-eight great states. Forty-eight individual communnities with pride and dignity and purpose. All divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common purpose, and that's love for country.|
|That means that we have all come together|
|Republic--A state in which soverign power is invested in representatives chosen but 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.|
|One Nation--meaning, so blessed by God.|
|Incapable of being divided.|
|Which is freedom; the right of power to live one's own life; without threats, fear, or some sort of retailation.|
|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"
|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:
Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer, and that would be eliminated from schools, too?
