EVERYONE - STAND UP FOR YOUR VERSION O F THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE

Watch Red Skeleton’s recital of the Pledge Of Allegiance   https://www.facebook.com/blackwellohio/videos/1607914965949564/ What would’ve Red Skeleton said about the words “Responsibility And Opportunity?” The current wording of the Pledge of Allegiance is not complete,  not inclusive enough, and is dividing us more than it is uniting us. If you desire, you can read a recent opinion article in the Washington Post, written by Christopher Petrella titled, "The Ugly History Of The Pledge Of Allegiance - And Why It Matters" The Pledge of Allegiance has been in the news over the years because different people and groups of people have brought lawsuits and are protesting the words used in The Pledge Of Allegiance.  These people and groups include students of elementary schools, high schools, and colleges across our country. Religious and atheist groups.  Elected government representatives, parents, and teachers.  Because of these actions, the Pledge is not being recited in some schools and gatherings.  We need to move from "Protest" to "Constructive Solutions" to help solve our country's many problems and divisions.  Our Pledge Of Allegiance should strengthen our union of 50 states and our citizens not divide us. Our pledge to our Flag, written by Francis Bellamy in 1892, "and to the "Republic for which it stands" was written to sell flags to all the schools across our country. The Pledge should be changed to reflect our love, respect, and loyalty of and to our nation. It should emphasize the core values of our founding documents and what our economy and society are striving to achieve! When our nation's fathers wrote "to improve the general welfare" in the U.S. Constitution, and "certain unalienable rights, of Life, Liberty, and pursuit of Happiness" in the Declaration of Independence, they were writing about each person having the "Opportunity" to be included in a self-governed nation, and a liberated economy, and society. A government for the people and by the people. There are several things we could  do to our Pledge to make it more inclusive and less dividing.  We could pledge allegiance directly to our republic of 50 states, and our fellow citizens and make other changes. We should still honor and respect our flag by standing and then looking towards it, holding our right hand over our heart while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.   Below  I have made 5 versions of our Pledge.  Please choose the one version you would support and sign the Petition!  Thank you!!!                        Pledge Of Allegiance  1.
