After saying the pledge, we'd sing "My Country Tis Of Thee."
my slightly altered version was: My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of the ICING. Land where our fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountain side, let freedom ring...
So, basically, i pictured a sweet land frosted with icing but then became sad to think of my father dying and then i'd picture people eating turkey because the strongest word to associate with pilgrim in my mind was turkey. This happened to me almost every day, and created within me a wide variety of emotions from munchies for the icing to deep sadness at the thought of my dad dying and us eating turkey afterwards.

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'.

I used to believe that in the Pledge of Allegiance you would say "For Richard Stands" instead of "For which it stands" Till the 8th grade i had no idea.

"And to the republic, for britches stands" was what I thought it was. Someone told me the real thing, but I never found out what britches were.

I thought the word to The Pledge of Allegiance were, "and to the Republic for witch's stands".
I would envision witchs sitting in life guard towers.

with libbily and justice for all.

I used to believe that the Pledge of Allegiance said, "One nation Under Dog," insteadof "One nation under God." Under Dog was my FAVORITE cartoon!

When I was in 2nd grade I had a boy in my class that tended to ask many questions. One morning before we said the Pledge Of Allegience, the teacher asked us to put our hands over our hearts. The boy turned toward the teacher and commented,"Mine isn't as big as yours."

When life throws you a curve ball, jump out of the way!

I remember learning the Pledge of Alliegence in first grade. We were told to put our hand over our heart. I became so fixated on feeling my heart beat, that I thought it would stop if my hand was not feeling it. I would casually sneak a feel whenever I could, hoping no one would ask what I was doing.

I always said it right, but I had a few weird beliefs about the pledge.

For one thing, my family was democrat (and I thought political party was genetic so I was automatically a democrat), so when I learned about republicans and democrats in third grade I thought it was wrong to say the part that goes "and to the Republic for which it stands" because I wasn't republican! Why do they get a line in the pledge, and not the democrats?

When I was younger my father and mother were horrified when I told them that the teacher at school was teaching us about America and witches. Being devout Christains, they wanted to know why witches were being discussed with a pre schooler. Come to find out I had mistaked the "for which it stands" in the pledge for "for witches stand".

When i was young, i went to a Christian School and we said the 3 plegdes every day and sang a couple songs afterward. I thought that you absolutely HAD to say the pledge or something bad would happen to you. When some of my friends would only mouth or not even say the pledge I thought they would die at any time or be taken away!!~!!

In elementary school, I recited the Pledge of Allegiance by imitating the class without thinking about what words I was saying. For a long time, I recited it, "..and to the republic, for witches stand, one nation,...with liberty and justice frog."

When I was in Kindergarten, my class used to recite the Pledge of Allegiance every day. When we got to the part that says "... and to the republic, for which it stands..." I thought we had our hands over our hearts to praise the "Republic of Whichit Stands." (Kind of like Puget Sound???) Didn't figure that one out until about 4th grade.

My teacher in first grade or kindergarten informed us that we had to take off our hats (Except the girls didn't have to because of some rule that women's hats went with their outfit so they didn't have to take off their hat.) This was in about 1990.
I believed this for a few years and, upon deciding whether or not to wear a hat that day, I would always decide, "No, I'll save this and wear it for the flag salute."
