Red Skelton on The Pledge of Allegiance

I watched this video recently of Red Skelton reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. This great communicator speaks to the meaning behind the words in the pledge. Even though this piece was filmed in the 60's, its timely for our nation today. How often have you heard the pledge or even recited it and blown right past the very meaning behind the words?

Thanks Red! May we remember this every time we hear or recite those words or see the Red, White and Blue.

    great take on the theme terrance...wonder how many things we recite beyond th pledge without considering its meaning as well.

    that's interesting--the big debate still goes on; i've no objections, but they probably shouldn't have added those two little words.

    My dad ADORED Red Skelton and we never missed his show. My brother still does the Gertrude & Heaathcliff voices with his thumbs tucked under his armpits. What a great take on TT. Thank you. Also, thanks for visiting my blog.

    We all need a reminder
    In this day and age
    Of just what the words
    In the pledge has to say.

    Thanks for the memories.
