"One Nation Under God" is a reminder to fellow Americans about how blessed our beloved USA has been from the first steps upon her Atlantic shore by the Pilgrims ... overcoming Her bloody tragic Civil War ... becoming the most powerful country in the world ... with beauty from coast to coast ... abundant natural resources ... and remaining the beacon of freedom that continues to attract immigrants wanting to pledge allegiance to Old Glory and strive to achieve their American dream.
And just imagine if ... the first settlers didn't come to this new land from Europe to practice their faith in God as they wished and without persecution from those who worshiped the same God from a different denomination. Otherwise, our America most likely would have never come to be without the desire to risk all ... including life on that maiden voyage and other ones across the Atlantic Ocean.
Nor has the right to worship God (or not) as you wish ... regardless of one's religion or denomination within ... changed when America won Her independence. It is a constitutional right! So, the reference to "One Nation Under God" is actually America's birth right ... This historical fact doesn't change ... regardless of political correctness sake or other bias reasons ... While anyone has the right to state differently, our great nation was founded with God in mind ... and like all earth's inhabitants ... it is truly under God above!

One Nation Under God
It stands tall and free, fifty states united; A family of diverse people, rooted firmly throughout its expanse.
It survived internal bloody turmoil that would have divided; Maturing from this scarring lesson, slowly growing into equality for all.
It keeps an open gate, allowing more to seek a new home; Giving them the opportunity to strive for better and be free.
It remains vigilant and strong against all who dare to test its will, whether to defend or help another in distress.
It is beauty and splendor... Splashed by the rolling waves of the Atlantic and Pacific, trimmed with beach sands, rocky cliffs, and glacier fjords, blanketed by fertile, productive green plains, adorned by majestic snow covered mountains, accented by lush forests, deep canyons, and stark deserts, quenched by bountiful rich lakes and flowing rivers, shared by a diverse animal life, including its bald eagle.
It is the symbol of freedom and strength, being able to vote and bear arms, guided by fairness and righteousness under the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
It is Old Glory waving under clear blue skies, the right hand over the heart or in salute, our great country, the United States of America, "One Nation Under God!"
