Ну в какой ещё стране возможно такое дикарство? Конечно же, в Алабаме: 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.
Most of us grew up reciting this pledge at school at the beginning of the day, with little thought of what the words mean. In recent years, the enthusiasm for this tradition has somewhat faded. But now, Alabama lawmakers want to change that.
Alabama House members recently voted to require that all K–12 public schools recite the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of each school day. Existing law allows schools a bit more discretion. Currently, Alabama schools are required to “afford all public K–12 students an opportunity each school day to voluntarily recite the pledge of allegiance to the United States flag.” But the sponsor of the bill said that, because many students don’t know the pledge, reciting it daily would help them learn it.
