In preparation for July 4th, next week, when was the last time you really paid attention to the words of 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 under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
I'd like to invite you to listen to my favorite version, the John Wayne’s version of The Pledge of Allegiance
Just listening to his deep grizzly voice saying the words gives me the chills, but his explanation of the words literally brings tears in my eyes.
We live in a great nation, regardless of how faulty our government is. I wish we could get back to the when it felt like our country cared about us as much as we care about it. I also wish we could get our so-called government listen to this version...reminding them of what we use to be, and could be again.
Have a happy and safe Fourth of July.
