I don’t usually post things without relating them to writing, but this one is important to me.
Making an oath is a serious thing. We swear an oath of loyalty to our spouses. We swear an oath of truth in a court room. We swear oaths to our churches, community groups, friends, and a million other entities.
With July 4th there are two oaths that I’ve been thinking about a lot. The first is the Pledge of Allegiance. We recited it as children in school, and had little thought about what it actually meant. I’d ask you to think about it today and reflect on what it really means to you.
The second is the Oath of Enlistment I took when I joined the Army in 1996. Please take a moment to appreciate our service men and women as they continue to serve and follow through on this important promise.
