Pledge was the only thing missing

My wife and I were proud to have tickets for our granddaughter’s graduation at Arlington High School.

The event was very well done even the P.C. police were involved in the setup and that involvement was noticed!

The Air Force ROTC presenting the Colors only fell short when the Pledge of Allegiance was absent!

What group of people was not offended by this omission of the Pledge of Allegiance? “One Nation under God.”

The administration at Arlington Schools needs to be reminded that this nation was founded on the Declaration of Independence and that document mentions our creator four times.
