On This Day In History…

On this day in 2000, then-Governor Paul Patton signed the Kentucky Pledge of Allegiance into law. My fourth period was stunned to learn of the Pledge’s existence. Do you know it?

I pledge allegiance
To the Kentucky flag,
And to the Sovereign State
For which it stands.
One Commonwealth,
Blessed with diversity,
Natural wealth and beauty,
and grace from on High.
