Yeah, not a question. So what. This is pretty much just a mom forum by now. Anyway, Some of you may remember the boy who wouldn't say the Pledge of Allegiance; and now there's been an incident with a girl as well.
The mother of a 13-year-old Montgomery County middle school student is demanding an apology from a teacher who had school police escort the youngster from a classroom for refusing to say the Pledge of Allegiance.
I don't care if you get offended at someone not saying the Pledge. It's our RIGHT as American citizens to not have to say it, and to deny us that right, makes our soldiers deaths in vain. Remember that when you throw around the usual come back: "Thank our soldiers for your right to not say the Pledge." Damn right I do. Freedom and rights as U.S. citizens applies to all of us, not just who we deem worthy.

Wow. When I was in high school (in NM), we had a choice! - we could choose to stand and say it, or choose to sit quietly. That is what I love about America - the freedom!

"Freedom and rights as U.S. citizens applies to all of us, not just who we deem worthy. "
Take your own words to heart. YOU reserve the right to NOT pledge allegiance to your country and others reserve the right to tell you what THEY think about it!
