Whoever says its silly to sing the national anthem, to pledge allegence to the flag, aare so wrong. These were very important in our young lives. Everyday, at 9:00 , we stood up out of respect to the flag and and put our right hand on our hearts, pledging allegence to our flag. Look around America. Till today, there is an honor given to the American flag. You will never, but never, see a torn flag waving in the breeze. That's only one of the benefits of teaching children early in life that their flag is important. Ever base an Israeli base on the Golan or anywhere? The poor flag is filthy, barely 'living' becase even there, nobody cares.
