Preparation: Cub Scouts memorize lines to recite from the Pledge of Allegiance.

NARRATOR: We often recite the Pledge of Allegiance without really listening to or understanding the words we are saying. We will recite it and talk about the meaning of each phrase.

CUB SCOUT 1: I pledge allegiance…

NARRATOR: I, an individual, promise my love, devotion, and loyalty.

CUB SCOUT 2: To the flag of the United States of America…

NARRATOR: It is the symbol of 50 great states that have a common bond.

CUB SCOUT 3: And to the republic for which it stands…

NARRATOR: Representatives are chosen by the people to govern themselves in a republic.

CUB SCOUT 4: One nation under God…

NARRATOR: We are one nation under God and blessed by God. There is no pause after nation. It is said as one complete phrase—one nation under God.

CUB SCOUT 5: Indivisible…

NARRATOR: It is incapable of being divided.

CUB SCOUT 6: With liberty…

NARRATOR: With freedom and the right to live your own life the way you wish.

NARRATOR: Dealing fairly with others.

CUB SCOUT 8: For all.
