“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.” For many years, children have spoken the above words in schools, churches and other places to show respect for the American flag. All local school students start their day by standing and reciting the pledge, followed by a moment of silence.
