Of course this will probably turn into one of those very intense discussions.
 But I love saying the pledge with my students. I get all emotional.
Weird.....<g> probably...but to me....it is a very important symbol of our
history and all the liberty we enjoy by being citizens of this country.

Do I think a student should be forced to say the pledge? Of course not, but
I am having a hard time understanding how it can be unconstitutional when a
citizen of a country pledges allegiance to that country.
