My opinion on the flag is, when you say the pledge you shouldn’t act like your saying it, or say it in a funny voice to make your friends laugh! You should say it correctly it will take no more than 15 seconds of your time! That pledge is the least we can do! Cause remember…. those people took the ultimate sacrifice to save our country, and you won’t say a pledge to tell them you honor their choice! There’s no reason for you not to say the pledge!
We stand for the flag today, not for are own pleasing, but to honor those people that had paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom today.
Us Americans have stood for the flag now, since June 14, of 1777, the day the Continental Congress was declared “That the flag of the United States shall be thirteen stripes, to alternate red and white, that the union shall be thirteen stars, with white in a blue field, and it shall represent a new constellation.
Thirty-seven years later in August of 1814, the White House and U.S. Capitol laid in ashes after the British military burned the public buildings in Washington D.C. down. In the aftermath, many of are Americans understandably feared that the Union Jack, the British flag, would soon fly over all of America again.
We stand for the flag, not for this generation, but for a new generation, which will soon come.

If you don’t know the flag code by heart, you might be wondering about the do’s and don’ts of flag etiquette. It can be hard to differentiate between what’s patriotic and what’s offensive. Fortunately, once you learn a few rules and know what things to avoid when it comes to displaying the American flag, you can proudly display Old Glory the right way.”

When not showing proper respect to our nation’s greatest symbol of freedom, is that showing a level of disrespect to those who have sacrificed so much for that very freedom to protest in that way?”
Our national anthem is a statement to show respect to our country and our nation, and the people that fought for our rights to be free!
People are supposed to put their right hand over their heart during the Pledge of Allegiance as a sign of respect.
