With liberty and justice for all?

The new school year is about to start for most young ones. What an exciting time of year for both kids and parents! What new security measures will be implemented at each school to protect them from evil-doers? What new teaching methods will be employed? Will students still recite the Pledge of Allegiance? If they do, perhaps they should consider changing one small thing about it.

Instead of the Pledge ending with a period, change it to a question mark.

Many protest and dishonor our flag and national anthem. They question or reject the declarations of the Pledge of Allegiance either in part or in whole. Today, even I question the last one. “…with liberty and justice for all.”

Until all top officials of the U.S. Department of Justice, FBI, and the Obama administration are all made to account for, and hopefully penalized for, their pre- and post-election actions, I will continue to question if there really is “justice for all” in America.

Time for Lady Justice to stand proud, step up to the scale, and weigh in.
