Liberty and justice for all? He doesn’t think so…

I saw this on tv this morning and just wanted to share it:

10-Year-old won’t pledge allegiance to a country that discriminates against gays

I found it encouraging to see that an elementary-school student cares enough about the way this country is run and how people are treated to take a stand like this…or, more accurately, a seat. When I was ten, I was more concerned about my crush-du-jour and collecting all of the My Little Pony dolls. Now here’s a kid picking through the lines of a pledge a lot of us said by rote and actually *thinking* about what it says. If you remember your childhood, ten is an age where a lot of us are very concerned with what others think of us and would be too mortified to do something that attracted that much unpopular attention, especially in a conservative state. He is taking the time to be concerned with how other people are treated in a fight he doesn’t have a dog in, something I could certainly learn from.

Hats off, kid. Hats off.
