When I was a kid, growing up in Nebraska in the 1960’s, every day in school, we stood, put our right hand over our heart and said the Pledge of Allegiance.
Someone was always picked to lead the Pledge and that was an honor.
Sadly, in many schools today, that is no longer the case.
Today, there are those who try to make some sort of statement by NOT saying it at all. Rather than stand they sit. Rather than speak, they remain silent.
But for those who do recite the Pledge of Allegiance, I want to bring something to your attention. I think it’s important and maybe, after reading this, so too will you.
There is a very good chance you’re saying it incorrectly.
It’s not your fault. You get the words correct but, many say it the wrong way. It’s how you were taught as a child to memorize the Pledge and, well, it’s just not correct.
