When school starts again, a new law kicks in. Each morning will begin with a moment of silence, the national Pledge of Allegiance, and the Texas Pledge of Allegiance.
A state representative who had a hand in this (Dan Branch, R-Dallas) says the Texas Pledge, "reminds schoolchildren that they are unique as Texans."
Multiple choice. Which of these three is really the Texas Pledge?
A quick note about Number Two, which calls Texas "one and indivisible." The word "indivisible" is wrong because Texas does retain the right to divide into five states.
Nevertheless, Number Two is the actual Texas Pledge. Again, it is "Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one and indivisible."
So even though it's wrong, it's the right pledge. Maybe that makes us "unique as Texans" too.
