Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all . . .

“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.” Indivisible. Undividable. Inseparable. United.
As children we are taught to pledge our loyalty to our flag and to the republic for which it stands. I wonder sometimes if we have forgotten what it means to be united.
