The American's Creed
June 1, 2005
Most of us probably haven't read The American's Creed in a long time, but it seems appropriate with Memorial Day so recently past.
Judge Paul Enlow
THE AMERICAN'S CREED
I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the people, by the people, for the people;
whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic;
a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those
principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag,
and to defend it against all enemies.
(Adopted by Congress, April 6, 1918)
