Pride in your Country? This is something Ill probably get alot of mixed oppinions on but I have made on observation on the Pledge said in my classrooms everyday. Hardly anyone stands anymore, let alone actually say it. Is pride and respect in our country failing, or is it just me? IMO, standing for the pledge is an obligation and responsibility that I take unto myself to pledge myself to my country. I know that some might say that they know they have respect for their country and dont think that standing every day is a way to show it and I respect that. Again, What do you guys think?
