An important part of my last post was who said that stuff originally. It was the highest decision makers of this very country. Sitting for the pledge is just as much a demonstration of respect for American freedoms as standing is. Just because you’re dissatisfied with something, or don’t feel comfortable with what could certainly be called excessive nationalism, or want to see the home you love get better, or the wording goes against your religion, or about a hundred other reasons, that doesn’t mean you don’t have respect or reverence. A change of pace can represent love for one’s country than blind repetition of age-old traditions. I’m more than happy to have a discussion, but tensions are too high for a debate to stay civil. Please be nice to each other. I really do love my country, I just don’t love the people in charge and the direction we’re going terrifies me. This is the only country I’ve ever known and I recited the pledge daily for the first many school years of my life, once I started looking seriously at what I was actually saying, I started questioning it. I think one of the most important parts of our history is the birth of the ability to do that. For anybody who actually read this whole thing, thank you, I hope you agreed with me and I respect if you didn’t. Feel free to chat with me about this subject. ~Camden
