"Pride in America"
Patriotic Ceremonies (Rituals) are a part of many Public Programs sponsored by Schools, Churches, Clubs, Associations, Sports Clubs, Professional Meetings etc. The playing of our National Anthem: The Star Spangled Banner, or reciting The Pledge of Allegiance are two very common ceremonies associated with Public Programs in The United States.
Generally, The Flag is a part of all Public Ceremonies in our Nation. The proper display of "Old Glory" is a matter of Public Law. See our Flag Page for proper procedures.
Good Citizens give their personal time to good causes. Being in a Leadership position in an organization requires Citizens to be aware of patriotic Rituals associated with public ceremonies. Additionally, it is customary in the United States to run meetings by Parliamentary Procedure.
