Upside Down: Allegiance to the King

How many of you can say the Pledge of Allegiance by heart? At one point in history, it was a requirement to say this affirmation every day in school. We align ourselves with many establishments and people in our lives: our country, our political party, our president. But in grand scheme of things, there is…

Upside Down – the Law of the land
