I pledge allegiance
To the flag
Of the United States of America
And to the controversial culture for which it stands
One nation, under whatever deity you choose,
Indivisible since 1965,
With liberty and justice for all who can afford a decent lawyer.

Wow. I never actually thought about changing the words of the pledge. Actually it makes sense. I really like it. So from now on, when a student announces to 'Please stand for the pledge' I will stand and recite this new pledge that represents what we live in today! :)

This is a great representation of what the country really is for itself, or actually it's really at least what we try to get it to be.

Thanks guys...I'm surprised no one saw the typo, but I guess the most recent 60s weren't very united either. I'm glad you like it so much.
