If you attended school in the United States, do you remember starting your day reciting the Pledge of Allegiance? I do.
And if you grew up and were schooled elsewhere, did you have to recite a similar pledge?
[Yes, I’m sensitive to the fact that not all nations observe such rituals. And I’m equally sensitive to the fact that in some schools there is public prayer.]
The point of this blog post is simply to ask: What pledges have you made of late?
For example, when was the last time you and other members of your club revisited or recited aloud the #ToastmastersPromise?
And is this promise a part of your new member induction or club welcoming?
What are the PROs and CONs in reciting such a pledge or making such a promise?
