Americans Creed Minute
This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
In 1918, when the First World War wast just starting, a man named William Tyler Page wrote the American's Creed. A 'creed' is a statement of beliefs or principles.
For many years, the American's Creed was recited at public ceremonies and daily in schools. Listen to what Mr. Page wrote:
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, 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.
