Freedom Isn't Free
by Superintendent Dennis Paquette
Studies show that two out of three American adults do not know the words to The Star Spangled Banner or the Pledge of Allegiance. That is troubling to me. We live in a great country. Opportunities abound, privileges are available to us all. The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by a minister named Francis Bellamy.
