I received an email forward today, my normal response is to delete them. For some reason, I opened this one and read it. Not only did I read it, but I clicked the link that was included.
What I found was a link to Red Skeleton talking about The Pledge of Allegiance. I have listened to this several times today, and took the time to play, pause, write, play, etc… so that I had all the words written down.
My intention was to post the words here, because they are powerful. However, at the end of the recording, the credits pop up and it says you can’t reproduce or publish without permission from Red Skeleton’s estate.
Now, I don’t know if this constitutes “publishing” or not… but I’m not going to risk it.
So, have a listen for yourself. I recommend writing the words down and having your children listen as well.
