Don't force reciting of Pledge of Allegiance

Posted: Monday, January 26, 2004

I would just like to say I agree Ms. Spencer. I, too, am a high school student and I feel that saying the Pledge is stupid.

I haven't said it since the 7th grade, but I stand up anyway, mostly to unwanted controversy. We live in a free country. "Forcing speech" on students not much different from no freedom of speech. While I believe the Pledge is a nice idea for some, it should not be forced on students.
