I used to think that the Pledge of Alliegence was something you had to do every day or God would get really mad, so in the morning on weekends I would quietly do the Pledge to this little plastic American flag. My mom never knew about this. Also, I knew the words but I didn't really know what they meant until 2nd Grade when our teacher explained it all. I thought it meant you were worshipping the flag and it seemed to me like you were supposed to bow to it.
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.
I used to think the pledge went "And to the Republic for *Richard Stands*, *Wanation*, Under God, with Liberty and Justic *Frall*"
I used to believe that the plege of the usa said liberity and justice for bra. i singed it to mom one day. well you know the rest
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!
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.
'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.
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...
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 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
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!
I pledge a lesson to the flag, of the united states of america
And to the wee puppet, for Richard Stanz
In the vestibule
For liver, tea, and just rice for all
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.
For the longest time I thought Jesus's name was Richard. (And to the rebublic, for *Richard* stands, as one nation under God...) -_-;
this isnt my belief.. but i heard it from my 5th grade teacher.. every monday.. we would recite the anthem.. and the part "and to the republic.. for which it stands" was totally missunderstood by one of her former kids... one day he went up to her and asked "whos Richard Stands?" then she laughed n corrected him .. its which it stands.. not richard stands ;)
