Trudy R: Hooah
Bonnie M: there is something missing…Under God?
Brenda V: Whats up with that?
Andrew V: Actually that’s the original pledge of allegiance. Under God was added in 1954 mostly over the red scare of the cold war.
Lila M: what happened to “under God?” I remember when they added that in the ’50′s…we had to practice the new way at school, as we said the pledge every morning.
Josie V: WHAT HAPPENED TO “UNDER GOD”???
Trudy R: Need the under God back
Chaplain James Collins: I am just a dumb ole country preacher, but it could be the point was just that…there is no God. We have taken God out of everything in this country. Yes, I understand that God was not in the original, but didn’t God make it better? Again, I don’t know much, but I think that it is better with God. We need God to bless America again.
Olivia R: Under GOD. Our country has been blessed because we r under GOD blessing. What other country in the world can say that ? That’s why we hav the freedom GOD has given us
Randy K: You forgot “under God”.
Barbara S: I liked it until I didn’t read “under God”.
Theresa O: That is the correct and original pledge of allegiance. Under God was added in the 50s.
Roger A: Hey ya ol country preacher your right God did and still does make it better… hooah Sir
Jessimine S: Cannot like it unless under God is there and don’t support anything that implies it’s ok to leave God out. That’s what is Wong these days as it is.
