OUR AMERICA

"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 grew up with this pledge. We used to say it every morning before school started. How many schools say it today? I think that it should return to our schools. I think that every school child should know it. If it offends someone? Oh, well. Get over it.

It seems that we have something that states "We the People." Well, what has happened to "The People"? Where are the ones who speak for the people? How many of us have paid the most, by the loss of loved ones. And what of the ones we lost from 9/11? When will we hold our heads high again as a nation? Have we forgotten something along the way?

Maybe it is time for each and every one to take some time. And look, really look, at ourselves and our country. We CAN fix this country. Let's do what needs to be done instead of passing the buck. The blame game gets us nowhere.

For we are one nation. We are the people of the United States.
