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.
