A young Colin KaeperninjaI stopped standing for the pledge in 8th grade. I objected to the "under god" bit. To me that constituted forced prayer and I had objections to being forced to swear my allegiance to the nation when I never performed any action to the contrary. I recognized early on that the pledge was teaching us obedience and so I decided to test the limits of my right to object.
After being bullied, chastised, and sanction by teachers and administrators they just gave up, and created an exception whereby I was allowed to not stand for the pledge (like they were the ones deciding that). No one ever joined me. No one else ever seemed to care. Everyone else did as they were told.
No sympathy for the majority.
