It was a humid morning in the “Escuela Secundaria General #1 Lic. Adolfo Lopez Mateos.” I was sitting in my classroom, talking to my friends: Santos, Pedro, Alejandro, Eduardo, and Carlos. It all started as the usual Monday morning. Our principal chooses a random classroom and the teacher of that classroom chooses the kids to speak in the “Ceremonia de Honores.” As I talked to my friends, the principal walked in looking for kids to speak in the ceremony.

After my incident happened I studied the pledge so I would never forget it. The next time I listened the pledge, I felt chills throughout my whole body, but I can recite it perfectly in my
