On January 14th, 1969, Red Skelton recited the Pledge of Alliegence on his CBS variety show. 
SInce then, it has become the clearest explaination of what each word and phrase meant.  This recitation has been read twice into the congressional record and has recieved countless praises. 

Setting aside our differences, even those concerning certain wording in the pledge, I offer this to you as a reminder of what this great country is.  And although many of us forget, what it could become.
