Today I went up to Pam's school and watched as she got her hair cut off for Pantene Beautiful Lengths. It was an awesome contribution and selfless act that will certainly help someone who has lost their hair due to cancer. I was extremely proud of her and have to admit I teared up while I was recording the whole thing during her schools morning assembly. After she was done the kids stood up and said the Pledge of Allegiance. I haven't said the Pledge of Allegiance in a long time. You know we don't have morning assembly at my school mainly because that falls under the, "You know how I know your gay?" category. Anyway, as I stood there hand over heart reciting the pledge, I felt a great since of pride and gratefulness for the country that I live in. So many people gripe about this great nation, yet we take for granted all the freedoms and rights that we have. I'm so proud and thankful for our soldiers defending our nation and making it safe for others around the world as well and whether you believe in what the government is doing or not, know that those soldiers are giving up their comforts and possibly lives for you so at least support them. We live in a unique, wonderful nation and sometimes with our busy hectic lives we forget that. So today I feel proud. Proud of my wife who gave to someone who is suffering and in need and Proud of my country and the men and women who are out there defending it. All of you are my heroes.

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible,With Liberty and Justice for all.
