A 15 Year Old's Plea






Good Evening to All!

Tonight I have a special feeling of "true" patriotism in my heart. Today I received an e-mail that really tugged at my heart-strings, because of what our country is becoming.

I truly believe that our "founding fathers" would literally cringe at our country's state today, seeing how they specifically placed God in our Declaration of Independence, gave us Freedom of Religion, and included God on our currency. If I remember my history fairly well, I think our ancestors left England so we could have "freedom of worship, and now people are trying to quash that. Are we coming full circle?

When a Fifteen Year Old young person wants to go "against the grain" and be brave enough to stand their ground which is different from a lot of their peers more than likely, and wants to see our values back to where they are meant to be, it really makes me want to stand up and yell Encore! Encore! Here is what a lot of us feel, but don't voice it out in the open. I commend you young person whoever you may be.

What wisdom from a 15 yr old!!! Praise God!!
Written by a 15 yr. old School Kid in Ohio :

New Pledge of Allegiance

Since the Pledge of Allegiance & The Lords Prayer are not allowed in Schools anymore Because the word 'God' is mentioned... A Kid in Ohio wrote:

NEW School Prayer:

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule.
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.

If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise..
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the state.

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible..
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.

We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!

Amen

I think this is an awesome prayer, and can't help but think if enough young people were to start praying it, that a difference would come. It seems as the tables have turned. It feels to me as if we (Christians) are being discriminated against. I can't help be feel as though non-Christians feel threatened by Christians otherwise it wouldn't matter to them whether there was prayer or not. The kids weren't ever forced to pray. I remember being told to bow my head. That didn't mean I had to pray.

Ok, I best get off my soap box before I get myself in trouble. All I'm saying is I feel that the morals in this country have gone to pot and the only way out of it is prayer. The government is like newspapers and magazines. They are going to do what sells, and unfortunately, the shape our morality is in, it doesn't look good for clean, wholesome Christians.

This is one person's opinion written in this post (make that 2 counting the young person who wrote the prayer.) I hope I have not offended anyone by me stating my feelings and values. I pray there are more like me out there, that will write that prayer down, or copy it and send it to others. Maybe it will make a difference.

Please feel free to write me a comment, letting me know how you feel about this post, no obscenities please.

Good night All and May God Bless!

My cousin is 15 and is definitely against the grain of her age group. She's into learning while others her age are into socializing. She's having a hard go with high school. :(
