Ok, I know I haven’t’ blogged hardly at all this week, but this just has to be posted. Ok, so this kid (who is entitled to his opinion) is saying that it is WRONG to say the pledge of allegiance (to America, by the way) during foreign language week at school, IN foreign languages.
Personally I think the whole protest is a little too Xenophobic in nature. They aren’t saying pledges of allegiance to those OTHER countries! They’re say the pledge to AMERICA. The father makes a reference that it’s like wearing a cross upside down in a church! What!?!?! NOO! It’s like worshipping God or saying a prayer in your own language! That’s all people! Arrgg!! The only disrespect that is going on is that the protesters don’t acknowledge the other ton of languages that American Citizens speak. So that’s MY opinion.
