I Pledge.....


The Pledge of Allegiance is a promise or oath of allegiance to the United States and to its national flag. It is commonly recited in unison at public events, and especially in public school classrooms, where the Pledge is often a morning ritual. We did this in school every morning and thought nothing of it:

"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."

Should be rendered by standing at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.
People have been saying that the Senator from Illinois was not saluting the flag so he is un-patriotic. If you don't salute the flag does it make you un-patriotic?
