米国的爱国宣誓词

看了黄埔兄等关于子女教育的讨论,想起了美国学生们每天早上念的这个东东。

本来还不知道,直到一天听到女儿嘴里嘟囔着什么“four witch’s tents, one nation under duck”。一问,才知道从kindergarten开始,就已经每天早上念这个了,只是她根本不知道是什么东东。我让她背了几遍,发挥托福听力功底,整理出这么个句子:

I pledge a legion to the flag of the united states of America and to the republic for the richs tens, one nation under guard, invisible with liver, tea and justice for all.

想想不对劲,肝脏茶叶都出来了;而且不是平等吗,怎么成了富人共和国。又听了几遍,改为:

I pledge a legion to the flag of the united states of America and to the republic for Rich Stanz, one nation under guard, invisible with liberty and justice for all.

这个什么Rich Stanz 一定是个大英雄,绝对猛过华盛顿/杰弗逊,不然怎么是the republic for Rich Stanz呢。

又过了半年,在网上看新闻说有加州法院禁止学校早上背诵这个,原因是与宪法抵触;这个判决立即遭到全米爱国人民和全体国会议员,总统的愤怒谴责,且即将被最高法院推翻…。惊奇之下细看,才发现我的听力太high了。原文是:

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, andto the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all。

哇拷,老美的爱国主义教育就是牛皋,好好学习天天宣誓,还附加上帝精神,(宗教自由?)。
