With Liberty and Justice for All

United States of America Flag, Pledge of Allegiance, Flag

ONE nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for ALL! (excerpt from The Pledge of Allegiance)

Sometimes we need a simple reminder of what “justice for all” means in the midst of the current chaotic climate we are experiencing in our country.

The Pledge of Allegiance of the United States is an expression of allegiance to the Flag of the United States and the republic of the United States of America, originally composed by Colonel George Balch in 1887, later revised by Francis Bellamy in 1892 and formally adopted by Congress as the pledge in 1942. The official name of The Pledge of Allegiance was adopted in 1945. The last change in language came on Flag Day 1954 when the words “under God” were added. (Wikipedia)

We would not need to discuss injustice, inequality, and insensitivity if we’d only reacquaint ourselves with what defines us as a people and a nation. This was a morning mantra that we recited every morning in school after the National Anthem was played over the loudspeakers:

“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.”
