Liberty and Justice for All

Liberty and Justice for All
5"x7" (unfr) watercolor on paper

Today's 5"x7" tiny tidbit is titled "Liberty and Justice for All". Since 1892, when Francis Bellamy wrote the Pledge of Allegiance, the oath has been changed four times. The latest incarnation was changed in 1954, a mere 4 years before I was born. What does it mean to pledge an oath to the Republic and for Liberty and Justice for all people? To keep from this oath being such a divisive, hot topic, maybe I should attempt tounge in cheek humor and title this "To The Republic, Four Witches Stand". (grin) We find our flag all over, but do we really see it? I find it a powerful and beautiful sight when I glimpse its movement in the wind.
