Juro Fidelidad a La Bandera

"Juro Fidelidad a La Bandera..."
Ahh the first words of The Pledge of Allegiance (to the flag of the United States of America) only in uh Spanish. Imagine my surprise a few months back to hear my then four-year-old son saying these words of the Pledge of Allegiance in perfect Spanish. His pre-school has been teaching him Spanish this last year. No complaints there. I just wasn’t prepared for the irony that he now knows the pledge of allegiance better in Spanish than in English.
Happy Belated Independence Day!
