The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy (1855-1931). It was originally published in The Youth's Companion on September 8, 1892. Bellamy had hoped that the pledge would be used by citizens in any country.

In its original form it read:

"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
In 1923, the words, "the Flag of the United States of America" were added. At this time it read:

"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
In 1954, in response to the Communist threat of the times, President Eisenhower encouraged Congress to add the words "under God," creating the 31-word pledge we say today. Bellamy's daughter objected to this alteration. Today it reads:

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

The Catholic Knights of Columbus were very instrumental in adding Under God, that rarely gets mentioned anymore


and for those who choose to mix nationalism in with insanity, you're just antagonizing because that picture of the 'salute' with the US Flag has other contenders which can be added

There was a huge Nazi representation in America, schools, parades, etc
Photos like that are not rare

I said that every morning on school with the rest of my classmates and none of us grew up to be Nazis as far as I know. You're not proud of where you come from? I don't blame you....America has done some really bad shit to the rest of the world! I don't blame you if you hate America......you should leave now before you have to hear any more kids reciting the Pledge....hurry! Take your hate for America somewhere else....it's not welcome here! We're trying to clean the place up and it would be easier if you weren't around...you're in the way of progress!

Edina city leaders vote to begin reciting Pledge of Allegiance at council meetings

Updated: July 17, 2019 08:44 AM
Another local government brought the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance to a vote.
Edina city leaders' decision to recite the pledge came a day after St. Louis Park city council members decided to bring back the pledge.

Edina was one of the few cities in Minnesota where the Pledge of Allegiance was not recited at its council meetings.
However, in a matter of hours Tuesday night, the decision to start saying the pledge was made without arguments from any council members.
"I think we're really doing the right thing here by all unanimously agreeing here tonight that we're going to say the Pledge of Allegiance at our meetings in the future," Edina Mayor Jim Hovland said.
During Tuesday's meeting, Hovland said the debate was brought up once in 2011 but that the conversation didn't go anywhere.
Council members said it was time to recognize the pledge after seeing what happened in St. Louis Park.

Last week, President Donald Trump even weighed in on Twitter, condemning the St. Louis Park council.

During Tuesday night's meeting, Edina council member Ron Anderson talked about his niece and how she was naturalized less than a month ago.
"I asked her how she felt about it when she was sworn in to recite the pledge the first time as a citizen, and she said, given all her considerations, it was the proudest moment of her life."
City council members will begin reciting the pledge starting with their August 7 meeting.
How many other city councils recite the Pledge of Allegiance at meetings? Below is the list of the 26 most populous cities in the state.
