Red Skelton reciting the Pledge of Allegianc

When I was in High School, we had just finished reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and he [Mr. Lasswell, the Principal of Vincennes High School] called us all together, and he says, “Uh, boys and girls, I have been listening to you recite the Pledge of Allegiance all semester, and it seems that it has become monotonous to you. Or, could it be, you do not understand the meaning of each word?
If I may, I would like to recite the pledge, and give you a definition for each word:

I -- Me; an individual; a committee of one.

Pledge -- Dedicate all of my worldly good to give without self-pity.

Allegiance -- My love and my devotion.

To the Flag -- Our standard. “Old Glory”; a symbol of Freedom.
And wherever she waves, there is respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts “Freedom is everybody's job.” of the United -- That means we have all come together. States -- Individual communities that have united into 48 great states; 48 individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose; all divided by imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common cause, and that’s love of country, of America.

And to the Republic -- A Republic: a sovereign state

in which power is invested into the representatives chosen by the people to govern; and the 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 Under God.
--
Meaning "so blessed by God."
Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said, "That is a prayer" -- and that be eliminated from our schools, too?

Indivisible -- Incapable of being divided.

With Liberty
-- Which is freedom;
the right of power for one to live his own life without fears, threats, or any sort of retaliation.

And Justice -- The principle and qualities of dealing fairly with others.

For All -- For All. That means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is mine.

As Red would say…Good nite, Good bye and God Bless.
