    Every American Needs to Watch This Video Ė Red Skeltonís 1969 Pledge of Allegiance

    Itís rare that I am made speechless from watching a video. Not only am I speechless, but there is a tear in my eye for this interpretation and recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.

    The only easy day was yesterday
    Dedicated to my brother in law who died
    doing what he loved being a Navy SEAL

    I saw that live when he gave it in 1969. It made me shiver. A good shiver.

    I saw it at the time as well. I have it on tape and DVD.

    This is the most moving thing Red Skelton ever did, imo. I like to show this to my students on the last day of school as a send off. You can hear a pin drop in the classroom every time.
