This isn't my story, but my friends little sister's story. Anyway, she's about 9 years old and she thinks the end of the pledge goes something like this: "With liberty, and justice for all. You may be seated." She thinks that because when they say it over the intercom at school every morning they always say "you may be seated" at the end.

When we were little my sister and I went to public school. Every day we used to have to say the pledge of allegiance. One day my sister and I were showing my parents how well we said it and they couldn't stop laughing and we couldn't figure out why. Instead of my sister say "and to the republic for WHICH IT STANDS," she used to say "and to the republic for RICHARD SANDS!" I don't think she realized she said it wrong until she was in highschool!

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.

I Pledge-a-ma-legiance :)

In fourth grade, I had just moved (back) to the US and learned the Pledge of Allegiance. Ronald Reagan was President, and I knew he was a Republican. For the longest time, I thought they would have to change "and to the Republic for which it stands" to "and to the Democrat for which it stands," if a Democrat was elected president. I don't remember when I learned what a Republic was, but fortunately, I got myself straightened out!

I used to know most of the words for the pledge of allegence, but for the life of me couldn't figure out who "Liverdy" and "Justice Verall" were...but I knew that they MUST be important people...

I used to thing that durring the pledge of allegiance, when it says "And to the republic for which it stands" That they were saying "And to the republic for Richards Stands" I was always wondering who the heck Richard Stands was!!

For most of my childhood, I believed that in the Pledge of Allegiance, you were pledging to the Republic for Widget Stands

All through kindergarten and first grade, I ended the pledge of allegiance by saying "...with liberty and Jesus frog." I finally realized I was wrong while watching an episode of Boy Meets World.

I used to believe the line in the Pledge of Allegiance read ... and to the republic for Richard Stands... I'd ask my parents and teachers who Richard Stands was but nobody knew. It was such a mystery to me.

the Pledge of Allegiance threw me as a kid "... and to the Republic for Richard Stands..." I waited for so many years trying to find out who Richard Stands was. We were told about Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln. I thought this man Stands must really be something to be in the Pledge.

I used to think "for which it stands" in the Pledge of Allegiance was "for witchit hands". I thought I was talking about witches hands!

I used to think that the pledge of allegience was '.. and to the republic where witches stand (one nation) under God...' I though that a country of witches lived in the space under God's chair!

When I was younger, I thought the words "Under God" were "Underdog" I always thought that meant something about the U.S. being younge.r then other countries. What's even worse is, when I went to visit my cousins, who don't live in the U.S., I took my flag and said the pledge, very wrong, every day!

Every day in school we would say the Pledge of Allegiance and I thought there was a word "whichit" like "for whichit stands" and had no idea of the meaning behind what I was taught to recite.
