Pledge Of Allegiance ...To The Earth Flag!

Last year, at the end of an inspired middle school gratitude day, Pancho gifted the school an Earth Flag, with which he often is seen.

On Tuesday, a "Kindness Team" joined Sunrise Middle School, where Teresa, Laxman, Imelda, and the 220 students and staff kicked off a school-wide 21-day Fearless Living Challenge.

One of the many inspiring students we met is a sixth grader named Andrew. As Teresa introduced him to us, we learned that he had written a Pledge of Allegiance to the Earth Flag! :)

A half hour later, during the school assembly, Andrew joyously strides up to the mic, stands next to the school's prominent earth flag, and invites everyone to join him as he recites:

I pledge allegiance
To the flag
That brings us together
And protects us from harm

In that simple display of quiet courage, down-to-earth confidence and goodwill, I couldn't help but feel hope for the future. (And later on, we heard stories about a second grader's Pledge of Allegiance to the Earth few years back... :))
