Have a Happy, Safe, and Blessed Fourth of July!

If you're curious as to why I'm using Red Skelton's version of The Pledge of Allegiance on my blog, then you need to check it out. I still get tears in my eyes whenever I hear this explanation of a civic vow I believe too many people have become apathetic to.

Please note that at the time, the words "under God" were not part of the pledge when Skelton was a child. Those words were added on June 14, 1954, by President Eisenhower.

I never knew that 'under God' was not part of the pledge until 1954. Thanks for helping me learn something new today!
