Francis Bellamy (1855-1931) wrote the original Pledge in August 1892. The Pledge was published in the September 8th issue of "The Youth's Companion", the leading family magazine and the Reader's Digest of its day. In 1892 Francis Bellamy was chairman of a committee of state superintendents of education in the National Education Association. As its chairman, he prepared the program for the public schools' quadricentennial celebration for Columbus Day in 1892. He structured this public school program around a flag raising ceremony and a flag salute - his "Pledge of Allegiance".

The original Pledge read as follows: "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and To
the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all
allegiance flag nbsp nbsp republic stands nation indivisible liberty justice

allegiance flag nbsp nbsp republic stands nation indivisible liberty justice
Freedom
(Christian Williamson 1997)

I can no more be bound
than the hawk in flight.
And I am the fires
that burn in the night.
And I am the shaking
and quaking of the earth.
And I am the water
of the world's rebirth.

I am freedom, I am freedom,
I am freedom, I am freedom.

I am no more contained than the waves on the sea.
I cannot be chained, because I must be free.
And I am the fire, that burns in all things.
The bell that tolls with freedom's call,
shake when you hear me ring.

I am freedom, I am freedom,
I am freedom, I am freedom.

bell tolls freedoms shake hear ring freedom freedom freedom freedom

Can't they see their land in peace
Can't they hear their songs once more
Can't the waves of the sea
Go to lie in the sands of the free land

It's not a matter of belief
But the hopes seem to be gone
And the waves of the sea
Won't lie in the sands of a free land

Freedom deep inside their hearts They are pleading every day every night

Can you just forget the times
When the kids could run outside
With their games and their jokes
With a smile and no fear in their faces

So they thought by playing hard
Soon their god would take a chance
And that justice would grow
And it's strength would bring peace to their sorrows

Freedom deep inside their hearts
They are pleading every day every night

And I know darling it's not one more tear
Yes I know honey we'll have to leave
Should we fight yes I will

Freedom deep inside their hearts
They are pleading every day every night
They want freedom deep inside their hearts
They are pleading every day every night


leave fight freedom deep hearts pleading freedom deep hearts pleading
I am a Republican Pagan. That doesn't mean I want the Mother Earth trampled on and polluted until we all die. That is so ridiculous. To even think that because I'm a Republican I couldn't possibly love the Mother and want to protect her. I do. My position is to live well, with as little harm to the Mother as possible.
No matter what your Religious beliefs are please have a safe and happy 4th of July

live harm mother religious beliefs nbsp safe happy 4th julynbsp

    However, I WISH I could score some illegal fire works and set them off down by the river like my parents say they used to do.. *sigh* but the police, damn doughnut eating paper pushers, care more about fire works than the numerous murderers and pedophiles in my town, thus they will be on "high alert" in and around the fourth of July. God, I hate cops..

    I intend to get hold of my neighbour's precocious and utterly obnoxious 6 year old kid, tie him to the largest rocket I can find and send him into orbit. After that totally satisfying experience I shall settle down with a very large whisky ( or three) and wish him a joyous time in the Heavens. Who knows-they may even name a star after him! satisfying experience settle large whisky joyous heavens knows-they star a very large firework rocket

    And we'll cookout, but with the temp forecasted to be around 108 degrees....We won't spend too much time outside. At least not in the day. Since it's only rained once since November 2, 2010....and that was in early May. So I don't think the $500 fine for firework use is worth it.

    used to do the roof thing,but to many bad discs in the back.to many beers not a good idea these day's besides they moved the fire works downtown over the river,so alot of folks watch them from their boats.and from the baseball park,the Philharmonic is doing music to the fire works this year,should be abel to se some of it from home,or go to the beach and watch !!!

    Dang, that sounds cool. I know no one in our area is doing anything. Two of the counties bordering ours have put 'zero tolerance' $1,000 fines for anyone caught using fireworks. Our county is only $500. But, it's pretty dry around here. Some people have lost homes not too far away, because of a cigarette thrown out of a car window.

    Most of the Native Americans here are Christian. They do not practice the old ways and do not talk about them.
