Pledge of Allegiance Feedback

Pledge of Allegiance Feedback - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

Every morning across the United States, over 60 million teachers and students recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Many of those teachers and kids may soon be pledging to a different tune. - Page 1

Last week we wrote about the court case that was filed in California about the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. Tons of Kidzworld members sent us their thoughts on this controversial case. Take a look at what Kidzworld peeps have to say:

1 If you look in the constitution, it doesn't say anything about separation of church and state. Just READ IT!!!!!!!

[Editor's Note: Here is the clause in question from the American Bill of Rights; "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances." If you were the judge in the Pledge of Allegiance case, what would your decision have been? ]

1 I think the Pledge should stay the way it is because the people who think the Pledge should not be in schools are wrong and also every child learns things from God and the Pledge should count as a part of everyone's life.

1 I think that there is absolutely no reason that the Pledge of Allegiance should be changed. Whether it was just changed to say "under God" in 1954 doesn't make a difference in whether it's a tradition or not. It's a tradition to me because I was not even alive in 1954 to know the other version. If Michael Newdow (or anyone else for that matter) is offended enough to take this case to the Supreme Court, then you would think that the school would excuse his daughter from saying the Pledge. In my opinion, America should not change a well-known tradition because one person disagrees. What will become of us then?

1 The Pledge of Allegiance is just a little pray to God for us to have a safe and happy life.

1 I say that people should just leave the Pledge the way it is 'cause it's been that way for a long time and it symbolizes some people's religion, so I say keep it.

Is God In Or Out?

  • I think the words "under God" should be removed.
  • I want the Pledge to stay just the way it is.
  • I'll wait to see what the court decides.
  • I don't really know what to think.

Explanation: Hoshi was best friends with the moon girl, Sina who secretly loved him but they drifted apart when Hoshi met Dimitre, a Russian boy. He hung out with Dimitre more and they both fell in love with each other. However, Sina was jealous and so she got Cira, the sun girl, who was in love with Dimitre to distract him and hang out with him. Dimitre was too kind to reject her so he just hung out with her. In the shadows, Sina was bullying and threatening Hoshi not to meet with Dimitre because if he did she would hurt Dimitre. One day Hoshi couldn't handle it and so he ran to find Dimitre after school. He saw Dimitre and went towards him only to get hit by a car. Dimitre saw Hoshi lying on the floor and rushed towards him and hugged him while Hoshi slowly died in his arms. Dimitre never got over his death after that point.

There once was a boy named Hoshi. Just like his name his smile was as bright as the stars in the sky. One day he met another boy who's eyes were a mixture of the aqua ocean and green land, Earth. His name was Dimitre and he came from a far away land. They fell hard for each other. Their love stronger than anything in the galaxy. The star left the moon's side to join hands with the earth in their journey of love. But a girl carrying a name that meant the moon felt jealous. Jealous of the stars love for the Earth. She wanted to make it so that Hoshi could never meet Dimitre again, and with the help of another girl with her sun-kissed hair, the star could never see the Earth. The sun would blind the Earth so much that he couldn't see Hoshi who would shine brightly with teary eyes, and then when the sun would go to sleep so did the Earth, and only the stars would feel pain. Months went by and Hoshi's heart only broke harder and harder until a plan popped in his brain. The star, lost and all alone, cut off the wings that allowed him to shine and he fell out of the sky with hot fiery pain. Dimitre saw Hoshi in his hurt and painful state and embraced him. They could finally be together. Only for a brief moment, until Hoshi could feel himself slip into a deep sleep wrapped in Dimitre's arms. The star had gone out, and had left a gaping hole in the Earth's heart that could never be filled.

I appreciate it, but that doesn't help my conscience.  To me, you're practically saying "if one of us dies, that's okay because there are still plenty of other humans all around the world".  I don't put other animals above us, of course, but they still exist.  Anyway, good day.  Enjoy this egg's before  [s:p/1n9v] and after  [s:p/1n7e] because I'm not sure how to say "good day" without sounding sarcastic.

That's because of our own human nature. We often value ourselves more than anyone else. Everybody affects everybody indirectly. People value progress over everything. One day the world will come crashing down, and with this crumbling and twisted society with it. Want to make a difference? Well, it's not too late to start.

I really hate how society is built. I really hate how unaccepting people are and how we have gotten this far due to sacrifices and inflicting pain on others. Why do we do this to our own kind? ​We are just destroying ourselves because we are unable to understand why some people do what they do. Why can't we just accept people for how they are? They're heart and their soul. I know the world can't be perfect but honestly right now the world isn't okay. Of course I'm just a kid so whatever I say won't matter but anyways that's just what has been on my mind lately :)
