  • of the United States of America – each and every of the 50 states that form the united nation of America
  • and to the republic – a country where people choose their representative to form the government and represent them
  • for which it stands, one nation – the flag that stands for one country
  • under God – there is one Supreme entity for every citizen
  • indivisible – a country that cannot be divided
  • with Liberty – complete freedom of life and living being given to the citizens
  • and Justice – fair treatment being promised by the law of the land
