The Importance of Understanding the Pledge of Allegiance

The Red Skelton Show was a beloved television program back in the 1960s. While it was known for its humor and entertainment, there were moments when the show addressed more serious topics. One such occasion was when Red Skelton himself focused on the meaning behind the words of the Pledge of Allegiance.

A Lesson Never Forgotten

Red Skelton reminisces about a day in his school years when a teacher made a profound impact on him. This teacher believed that it wasn’t enough for children to mindlessly recite the pledge. They needed to truly understand its meaning.
