I pledge allegiance to the flag of United States of America…
The Pledge of Allegiance is a sacred oath, representing the best ideals of our country.
And the best blood of our country.
Today, it’ll be my honor to accept an invitation to lead the Pledge of Allegiance before the State of Utah House of Representatives.
The invitation came via Rep. Kim Fitzpatrick Coleman. She is given the opportunity once in her elected two-year term to invite someone to offer a prayer and lead the Pledge on behalf of the legislature.
The legislative process is also sacred. Those who we have duly elected to represent us deal with the routine and complex matters of laws, bills, ordinances, and codes. In the routine, they impact nearly every aspect of our daily lives. In doing so, they also uphold the ideal put forth in our Constitution, to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”
I invite you to tune in to the proceedings today at 10 a.m. by following the link to the live feed. Select the video option under HOUSE by clicking the + sign.
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
