A tale of appropriation

Sometimes even the General Assembly can teach you something new.
While reading over the state House of Representatives Daily Report, I learned that there has been a gross oversight in almost every aspect of my daily life.
I, like the state House, have been neglecting to pledge allegiance to the state flag.
Although there is no Georgia Flag in the Union-Recorder newsroom--the staff in 2001, like people across the rest of the state, probably decided Georgia's flag didn't exist after they took away the confederate battle flag--it never occurred to me that I was overlooking my daily opportunity to pledge allegiance should one be present.
But if we ever get a Georgia Flag, or if you have one yourself, here's what you can say to join the state House in setting forth a guiding principle for your day:

I pledge allegiance to the Georgia flag and to the principles for which it stands: Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation.

Thank you state Rep. Bobby Franklin, R-Marietta, at least members of the state House will do their duty observing what is truly important: Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation.
