By saying the Pledge of Allegiance you express your loyalty to the United States and your will to defend the Constitution and the American Way of life if needed. At the same time you express your patriotic attitude to the American family. Every American, at home and abroad, should be responsible to form a more perfect union in order to give the light of liberty to the next generation. According to your abilities, this can be done in many ways. You can represent your country and serve as a role model. 

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.
