    I'm still in school, and my school used to say the Pledge of Allegiance every morning. Ironically, ever since Obama was elected, we no longer say the Pledge of Allegiance. The only time we say it is at assemblies, and we don't have assemblies that often.

    Personally, I miss saying it every morning. As an American, I think it should be recited every morning in government funded schools to honor the troops that protect this nation. If atheist mommy and daddies don't like it because it has "Under God" in it, oh well, they can grow up. We have to deal with evolution being taught so they can deal with a word and a name in the Pledge of Allegiance.

    Between 1st and 6th grade, I went to 4 different schools and we said the Pledge without fail every day at every one of them.

    In 7th grade, that seemed to stop for some reason and we didn't say the pledge again until I was in a high school oddly enough in one of the New England states.

    When I was a kid I use to, thought it was just every routine thing to show you're proud of the counry you live in. But now that I've reached a good age, I find myself thinking of things to be thankful for. An extension on the moment of silence, if you will.

    Yes, but for the first six years, it did not contain the phrase, "under God". Had to relearn it.
    If someone object because as religious beliefs ie: Jehovah Witness - they were excused from saying it and sit there quietly.

    Still in school, still say it every morning, yet, as an agnostic, I just leave out the 'under god' piece of the pledge.

    Yes we all did with our hand over our hearts. After that, the Lord's Prayer. This produced respect for God and Country, Teachers, one another!!! No profanity, no fighting (in school), no stealing, no guns, but we did have a few bullies - I mean like a handful, they just walked around and talked tough - but they were still scary. My elementary school Principal was tough. I would rather cross the bully than her - lol!! Actually, it was reverence.

    Of course I'm proud to be American, mainly due to my ancestors. I'm not as patriotic as in the past. I don't feel anyone should be forced to pledge to the flag.

    At what point in American history did peoples feelings and the need to not be offended become a Constitutional right? I guess it is a by product of a hyphenated America.

    I am not American so the pledge of Allegiance is not a part of our country but they used to make us sing the national anthem in both official languages every day. To this day not speaking french I don't know half the words to whatever I was singing were.
