A large numbers of memes presenting our Pledge of Allegiance and the American Creed have been crossing my path on social media lately. We are expected to dutifully salute, like, and share. Patriotism tugs at our hearts, and helps sell us on the needs of our military and more. We pledge and give honor to our creeds and oaths while being ruled from experts far away. This old VFW Dude takes pause each time he hears, sees or says the pledge, or reads the creed, simply due to the history behind both.

Most living in the U.S. know our pledge, symbolized through our respect of the American flag.  Fewer know the American Creed. It is time we revisit it before reciting it faithfully or liking it, sharing it and applauding our patriotic spirit in doing so.

Remember, liberty is our right, freedom our responsibility.
