I’ve been refusing to say the US Pledge for 65 years (when they added “under God”). Glad to meet others. We’re in good company.

The US pledge of allegiance is about honouring the sacrifices and history of the Europeans who came to “discover” land that was already discovered and inhabited.

I’m a JW and we don’t stand for the national anthem or pledge. My 8 yr old daughter sat during the Remembrance Day she was was yelled at, sent to the office - we respect freedom for all regardless of the beliefs or differences thereof.

After your TikTok video did you sit continue to sit for the Pledge of Allegiance? Did other students or teachers join you and remain seated during the Pledge? Are their other actions students perform at your school to bring attention to these issues?

In addition towards Jerry’s comments, a book recommendation: Survival Schools by Julie Davis, historical profile of American Indian survival schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul communities in the 1970s.
