38. One Nation Under Guard
My son was in first grade when that 9/11 event happened and people started draping themselves in flags and whatnot. The American Legion even visited the schools to teach all the proper flag etiquette, and the pledge of allegiance. My son, the quick study, mastered it immediately and recited it for us that night. When he got to that controversial line, "under God", he said,"One Nation Under Guard". We laughed and pointed out the error, but also informed him that his version was most appropriate and a healthy form of social criticism or political satire.

We are very proud our my son.
