In some places school has either just started or is about to start. Someone sent me this poem about going back to school. The author is unknown although it says it was written by a 15 year-old middle schooler (or a 9th grader) in Minnesota. The poem is a little "heavy" but poignant and worth the read. This is not recommended reading for your elementary or preschool kids.
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 intolerant to teach right from wrong
We're taught that such judgments don't 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 this school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make
Should I be shot, my soul please take.
We all need divine intervention, especially in middle and high schools. Interested in introducing angels to your schools? We have curriculum for ALL ages - even high school. Have your teachers and principals reach out to us whether they are in a public school or private school. We will help them incorporate angels all around their schools!
