Red Skelton With a Message for Our Day

leave a comment »

Red Skelton was the funny man of my childhood.  I remember seeing him often on TV programs like Ed Sullivan, Johnny Carson, and of course his own TV show, The Red Skelton Hour.

But on the occasion represented by this video, Mr. Skelton took a moment to teach a valuable lesson on what it means to be an American citizen and the solemn words of our pledge of allegiance.

This is a message for our day perhaps more so than in 1969 when it was recorded.  It is a great reminder of who we were as a nation and people not so long ago and where we must return if our nation is to remain whole and strong.
