My Kitchen Window View

I grew up saying the Pledge of Allegiance every school morning.  It started my day.  Even now, as my morning coffee brews, I look out my back kitchen window and look at my neighbor’s flag and say The Pledge of Allegiance.   It still starts my day. 

I catch myself saying the Pledge of Allegiance whenever I’m at my kitchen sink and see the flag.  And I think that I say it more than any normal, sane human being.  My neighbor’s flag is getting a little shabby…I might need to give him a new one, for me to enjoy.

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.
