“I pledge Allegiance”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “I Pledge Allegiance.”

Are you patriotic? What does patriotic mean to you?

The word “patriotic” sends my thoughts to a time during my childhood where the foundation to understand and appreciate the words’ pledge, oath, honor, and being patriotic were developed.

My education and understanding of these words began with my community when I took my religious oath, my Boy Scout oath, my US Army oath, and the oath for my career.

To be an American requires a pledge or oath of loyalty and fidelity to the principles upon which this country was founded. Race, Creed or gender are not requirements for citizenship.
