The Whitest Kids U’ Know x

I stopped reciting the pledge in the 8th grade and still remember each class i got kicked out of for doing so. (it was four. over the course of 5 years)

I used to always get weirded out when they would make us say the pledge

All you have to do is look like your saying it, but you’re really just moving your lips. Or, you change the words while saying it but says it quietly so you wont get in trouble. That’s what i do to not get detention.

I never even bothered to to learn the pledge, and I have never recited it once in my life. I was born and raised right here on the West Coast, I have never even been outside the United States at 18 years old, and even as a toddler I knew that I didn’t want to make that commitment, or say those words.

I never realized this was a weird thing until I saw this post about a year ago. It’s just kind of something we did… not really words that meant anything more than “our country is awesome!”
