I thought the pledge went like this.
I pledge alligence to the flag of the United States of America. And to the rebublic of witchit stands, one nation, under God, invisible, with libery and justace for all.
So I only pictured a witch holding a flag and trying to find God because he was invisible..
It was in Kindergarten that we first learned The Pledge. A rather old teacher was talking about it and he said "he'd had friends that had died under the flag", and meant that they'd died fighting in a war. I thought that he meant that people had died of heart attacks while saying the pledge.
I accepted the fact that I could die at any minute during The Pledge, and never see my family again. After reciting it for months, and no one had died, I came to the conclusion that the teachers were just trying to scare us into saying The Pledge every morning!
I used to believe the pledge went like this: I pledge alligence to the flag of the United States Of America, and to the republic, witch it stands, one nation, under God, invisible, for liberey, and justice, for all. So when I pictured what happened during the pledge I saw a witch standing on the side of a cliff next to a flag looking down on what was a invisible nation, with God looking down.
I believed, being Catholic, that the Pledge of Allegiance was a form of prayer. I went to a private school and we said our prayers right before the Allegiance, so thinking that it was another prayer, I would always make the sign of the cross before and after we said it. It took a considerable amount of time when I was just learning how to do the sign of the cross in Kindergarten to make it, and didn't understand how they finished the pledge so quickly.
My brother used to believe that the pledge of Alleigance went something like this:
I pled Allegiance to the flag, of the United States of America and to the Republic for switches stand, one nation, under God, invisible, with liver trees and justice for all
He convinced me in Kindergarten that his way was the correct way to say it, and the teachers were teaching us (what is truly the proper way of saying it) the other one so we would look stupid..haha...good times.
instead of saying "i pledge allegiance" i would say "i plege of allegiance". also, i decided that 'indivisible' didn't sound as good as 'invisible'.
when i was in 1st grade i was very proud that i knew the pledge by heart. i also thought u had to say it every day, or u were to have some kind of punishment and if you skipped a day u had to make up for it another day. so on the weekends when we would go shopping on the way we would pass all the resturants with flags infront of them i would turn to the window and slowly sneek my hand up to my heart and mumble the pledge to myself.. if we were going to fast and i couldn't say the whole thing i would start over at the next flag.. lets just say i could say the pledge of allegence really fast and to this day never stumble over the words
'I pledge-a-ma-legiance to the flag of the Ba-nighted states of america. And for the restarded where richard stands, one nation, under guard individiual with liberty and justice furall.'
I was like 7 and this is what I thaought it was, and I never new what any of it meant, just a bunch of words out together.
I did enjoy saying, though it made no sense.
When I was a kid I believed that if you were handling an America Flag and it touched the ground, the country lost a state. Just where the state went or who got it I didn't know, but God help the poor kid who was responsible.
When i was little i could never remember the pledge so i moved my lips and the words would just came out i thought it was a little guy saying it for me.
When i wuz 4 and i wuz learning the pledge of allegiance my mom always watched the show Regis and Kathy Lee so in preskewl instead of the pledge of allegiance i thought it was a present for Regis.
In grade school we use to always start the day with the pledge to the flag and morning announcements. A group of students would lead the Pledge followed by "please be seated" so students would continue to listen as the principal listed important items for the day. During a patriotic assembly for the K-2nd grade students the teachers performed a skit on stage. At the end of the final scene all the kids stood up to recite the pledge with the teachers. In unison they added to the end, "please be seated". We all thought that was part of the pledge!
when i was younger i thought which it stands was like a real witch or somthing
I used to think that One nation, under god, indivisible was invisible
I used to believe that the words "which it stands" were actually "widget stands" I always imagined god presiding over this invisible outdoor market of merchants selling widgets. I wondered for a long time what a widget was. It took me 5 years to get the words right.
My mother and law informed me that my husband came home from his first day at kindergarten and recited the Pledge of Allegiance as follows:
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, for liberty and justice for frogs.
When my class said the pledge, there is a line "for which it stands" and a young man came up to me and asked when we would learn the "witch's dance"
When I was going into kindergarten, I was afraid because I knew you had to memorize the pledge. I thought it was "I pledge a sneeze since to the bag of the United Snakes of America, and to the public for where they stand, one station under God in lizardy and justice for all."
Imagine my teacher's surprise when that ws what I recited.
When I was younger, I used to think that if we didn't say the Pledge of Allegiance at school, the Secret Serviec would come and arrest all of us for not saying it.
When I was younger (BTW I live in Canada) I used to believe that the last line of "O Canada" was
O Canada, we stand our guard, and pee!
When really it was
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
