Fargo School Board members reinstated their policy to say the Pledge of Allegiance prior to meetings. The back-and-forth decisions and debate have spurred threats of violence and national attention.
"The pledge is not forcing you to conform to religion, a political party, a nationality, a race or a gender," writes Fargo resident Erik Walker. "It is giving gratitude to one of the few nations on this planet that allows you to be all of those things that you choose to be."
