Flag Day 2020

“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, with liberty and justice for all.

T0o bad that it never really HAS been true, “with liberty and justice for all”. If it had been, Native Americans wouldn’t have been rounded up, forced onto reservations, and had their languages, spiritual beliefs, and cultures stripped from them. Africans would never have been bought and sold like cattle. Women wouldn’t have had to fight for the right to vote. Japanese Americans wouldn’t have been rounded up and put in internment camps. People fleeing countries they believe to be worse than ours wouldn’t be separated from their children, and all of them caged.

This country was founded on a lot of good ideas. Too bad the reality still falls so very short of the mark.
