I sure do. I can reconcile that thinking quite easily.
It is important for our children to understand American history (all of it, good and bad), and understand the concept of Patriotism. Reciting the Pledge reinforces that concept.
Some posters have disparaged America as being a bad place and they would never pledge their allegence to Her Flag. I trust these same folks will teach their children how "bad" America is and ignore all the good we have done throughout the history of this great Nation.
Children have the right to be free of abuse, have shelter, safety and access to quality education.
I do not see how this contradicts the Constitutional rights of minors. I trust you can explain.
