Today Is Pledge Of Allegiance Day [VIDEO]

(Photo by Dave Diamond)

Today is both Constitution Day and Pledge of Allegiance Day in the United States. The official time to say the pledge is 8:00 a.m. Hawaiian time, or 1:00 p.m. local time here in Wichita Falls, and every school in the nation is supposed to hold a synchronized recitation of the pledge at that time.

I clearly recall reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in grade school with my hand over my heart and my eyes on the flag. For some reason I always wanted to add “Amen” at the end.

When it comes to remembering the details of the Constitution of the United States I’m a little fuzzy, fortunately all of that information is readily available online at USConstitution.net.

As we head into another presidential election, today would be a great day to take a few minutes and refresh ourselves on the founding principles and guidelines of this great nation.

Red Skelton’s explanation of the Pledge of Allegiance has always been one of my favorites.

 

 

Give these words some thought before you cast your ballot in November.
