The City of Coral Springs wants to encourage good citizenship at a very early age by allowing local children to lead the Pledge of Allegiance at their City Commission meetings.

Not only do the children get this great honor, they will get their first lesson in civics by attending their first city commission meeting. They also get to be on Coral Springs TV, receive a really cool T-shirt, and have their photo taken with Mayor Skip Campbell.

The City wants to encourage parents to sign up their children up who attend elementary, middle, and high schools from public and private schools. Those who either live or attend Coral Springs’ schools are eligible to participate.

Commission meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 6.30 p.m. and the spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

If your child is interested in participating, call Lydia Cutz at 954-344-1063 or email with the student’s name, school name, grade and the month they would like the student to participate.

City Hall is located at 9551 W. Sample Road.

    Does the liberal crowd cringe when the line ” one nation under GOD ” happens ?

    • Fred

      The pledge is cringe-worthy both with and without the god nonsense.

    • tjb

      Right wing atheists will cringe.

  • Joe Hinkley

    Am I the only one who thinks mandating children to flag worship is creepy as hell. Hey, North Korea and Iran do it, so why not good ole’ USA?

    Amazing this is even a controversy.

    “What it means is to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite an abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country. It’s a great brainwashing process, which goes very slow and is divided into 4 basic stages. The first one being “demoralization”, it takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years which is required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy, exposed to the ideology of the enemy. In other words, Marxism/Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generations of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism, American patriotism.

    The result? The result you can see, most of the people who graduated in the ’60’s, drop outs or half-baked intellectuals, are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, mass media, educational system, and you are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated. They are programmed to think and act and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind, even if you expose them to authentic information. Even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still cannot change the basic perception and the logic of behavior. In other words, in these people the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To get rid of society of these people, you need another 20 or 15 years to educate a new generation of patriotically minded and common sense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society.”
