Take The Pledge

The Educational Pledge

By Alberto O. Cappas

I pledge always to try my best to understand

The importance of knowledge and education


I pledge to paint a positive picture of where

I plan to be tomorrow

Not allowing obstacles to stop the growth of

My plans for the future


I pledge to maintain

A healthy mind and body

Staying away from the evil of drugs


I pledge to seek answers to questions

With the understanding that they

Will lead to other discoveries


I pledge to work diligently

With the awareness and confidence

That hard work today will serve

As the seeds for my strong tree tomorrow

A tree that no one will be able to tear down


I pledge to learn proper languages

Beginning with the language of my Mother

Always prepared to appreciate others


I pledge to gain a better understanding of 

who I am

By understanding my Cultural roots

To fully accept who I am

As a spiritual and human being

A rainbow of many cultures and colors


I pledge to overcome any personal misfortunes

Becoming stronger from such misfortunes


Always striving to become

A compassionate and wise person


I pledge, I pledge, and I pledge.
