Re: pledge of allegiance

I'm not quite sure how all of this started, but as long as you suggest
someone learn about privileges of others, cover a broader area- male vs
women privileges, upper class ( or these days CEO) privilege or the
privilege of being Asian, Indian, Hispanic, Jewish, French, et. Every
category has some sort of privileges.
As far as the pledge- "I pledge aligence to the flag.......-Amen!
Rituals have an importance and I feel alot of kids are missing good
rituals in their lives-imho. :-)
