SOLDIERS BLOOD FOR PEACE
 
July 4th Comments

Our flag has fifty stars.

It has red and white strips,

Soldiers blood for peace.

{ This is my pledge }
Pledge of Allegiance

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.

{ This is what I found on a web site }
I pledge allegiance”
(I promise to be true)

to the flag”
(to the symbol of our country)

of the United States of America”
(each state that has joined
to make our country)

and to the Republic”
(a republic is a country
where the people choose
others to make laws for them.
The government is
“of, by and for” the people)

for which it stands,”
(the flag means the country)

one nation”
(a single country)

under God,”
(the people believe
in a supreme being)

indivisible,”
(the country cannot be split into parts)

with Liberty and Justice”
(with freedom and fairness)

for all.”
(for each person in the country...
you and me!)

The pledge says you are promising to be true to the United States of America!
