"The attacks of September 11th created a stronger America and we have a renewed spirit of patriotism. We see it in the countless flags that are flying everywhere.  We hear it in familiar phrases that move us more deeply than ever before. The Pledge Across America has been an important part of renewing a spirit of patriotism in the hearts of our young citizens."

 


George W. Bush
President of the United States

"I commend Celebration USA, the organizers of the National School Celebration and the Pledge Across America.  Last October, Pledge Across America gave millions of American school children a chance to express their patriotism and pride in our nation's values, at a time when those values were being attacked. Our free society will only survive if our young citizens understand and appreciate that we are a nation 'indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
