In 1954, UNDER GOD, was added to our United States of America pledge. A little something I thought I would share on this July 4th, America’s Celebration of Independence. I don’t recall ever not knowing the “pledge”. We learned it young and said it at the start of each morning, with our hand placed over our heart. Respect. Honor. Liberty. Justice.
I watched my dad, many times, remove his hat as the flag would pass by. My hubby taught our boys the same. Respect. Honor. Liberty. Justice. To this day, there is nothing more touching, than to be at a large event, and for a moment, all eyes and hearts are focused on that red, white and blue. God bless America. And thank You for not leaving us, even as many have forsaken You.
Thank you to all who serve, who have served, and who have sacrificed for this country. May we always remember ~ “Freedom don’t come free” ♥
