I Pledge Allegiance ...

Imagine my surprise yesterday when visiting a courtroom in the McHenry County Government Center, when Judge Robert K. Beaderstadt entered and asked all to repeat the Pledge of Allegiance before being seated.

How many of the "younger generations" can say the Pledge of Allegiance? How many just mumble the words without thinking of what they really mean?

If you would like a quick refresher on the real meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance, watch Red Skelton's explanation at

The late Mr. Skelton (1913-1997) presented this very personal explanation of the Pledge of Allegiance on January 14, 1969, on CBS-TV. Watch it; bookmark it; share it.
