CIS Students Honor our Flag!

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.
We’ve been repeating this pledge since grade school, but have you ever taken the time to analyze what each part truly means?
The Boy Scouts have, and below you’ll find their translation for each part of the Pledge.
I pledge allegiance… you promise to be loyal
to the Flag… to the symbol of your country
of the United States of America… a nation of 50 states and several territories, each with certain rights of its own
and to the Republic… a country where the people elect representatives from among themselves to make laws for everyone
for which it stands,… the flag represents the values of our form of government, in which everyone is equal under the law
one Nation under God,… a country formed under God whose people are free to believe as they wish
indivisible,… the nation cannot be split into parts
with liberty and justice… with freedom and a system of law
for all… for every person in the nation, regardless of their differences
