'I pledge allegiance
(I promise to be true)
to the Flag

(to the symbol of our country)
of the
United States of America
(each state that has joined to make our country)
to the Republic
(a republic is a country where the people choose others to make laws for them
-- the government is for the people)

for which
    it stands,
(the flag means the country)
one nation

(a single country)
under God,

(the people believe in a supreme being)

(the country cannot be split into parts)
with liberty and justice

(with freedom and fairness)
for all.

(for each person in the country...you and me!)

The pledge says you are promising to be true
to the United States of America!
