I prefer that our child takes the concept of "pledge" very seriously, so I have no desire for random people to teach her to recite things as pledges.

As far as the specific sentiments of this pledge, they are a bit too sappy and nebulous for my tastes. Plus I have serious doubts we'll ever achieve "peace and freedom everywhere" at least not in her lifetime. Not everyone has the same ideas about what freedom means anyway. Why the heck should she be promising to do the impossible. I would rather than she have achievable goals than "beautiful" ones.

Bah humbug.
