When was the last time you recited these Patriotic words? In the United States we have our “Pledge of Allegiance”.
You may remember when you first learned these verses in America. As a young student in elementary school or even on the ball field with your team starting a game.
Maybe it was a ceremony when you were in scouting or actually became a U.S. naturalized citizen.
Were you with a small group of like minded volunteers, beginning a meeting or training session to improve your skills and gain new knowledge? Destined to really make a difference somewhere and somehow in your particular area of responsibility (AOR).
What about you? When you say this pledge does it make your heart beat just a little faster?
Do you notice a small tear in your eye, as you see our magnificent flag of the United States?
As you gaze at 50 stars and 13 stripes of Red, White, and Blue in the wind, you know why.
You know deep in your heart, what it really means to have the privilege of growing up in our America.
On our July 4th Day of Independence, we celebrate the beginning of our journey as a republic nation.
America as the land of the free, started on the battlefield. We gained valuable rights and agreed on the laws of the land, we call the home of the brave.
To make a difference each day to protect, to preserve, to innovate as we grow and prosper as a nation of our 50 United States?
Your story begins by raising your hand. To volunteer your time, your skills, your knowledge or your labor to improve our country and to sustain all that we believe in as U.S. Americans.
You see, the real story of the 4th of July in America is all about:
“One Nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all”…
