When I started school in Orange, New Jersey I remember Miss. Sills’ first grade class. I was announced as a new student amongst snickers and finger pointing. “Look at her hair.” “She smells funny.” When I was tested to begin school in Orange I skipped and was the youngest in the class. The teacher called the class to attention and everyone rose and turned to the flag. The other children all said, “Stand up. You have to stand up for the salute.” “Salute? What were we saluting?” Their voices began in a chorus:
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of American and to the Republic for which it stand one nation under God indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
