They Say Nothing
Acrylic on canvas, 16x20in.
They Say Nothing text: "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
- Pledge of Allegiance (This version of the pledge came into use in 1953.)
It’s weird that the children of this country are made to pledge allegiance to the flag each morning. It’s even weirder when you consider that the president, and so many other politicians who took similar oaths to do what is best for the people under their care seem to only care about doing what is best for themselves.
Donations from this piece, and it's twin, We Say Nothing Back, will go to Brand New Congress.
