Really? Not saying a pledge is the thing that's going to ruin this country? A pledge that most people have to memorize and recite in school and have really no idea what it means or why they say it? If kids in China did this, we'd call it a horrific Communist practice that proves they have no personal freedom. I don't care if you take your moment of silence or say your pledge, but seriously.

There are outrageous things going on in our country, state, and even city, and this is the thing they want letters and phone calls and public outcry for. Chew on that for a while.
