The American 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.
