What do you think?

Mary had a little lamb
his fleece was white as snow,
And evreywhere that Mary went,
Her lamb was sure to go...

He followed her to school each day,
T'wasn't even in the rule,
It made the children laugh and play,
To have a lamb at school...

Then the rules all changed one day,
Illegal it became,
To bring the lamb of God to school,
Or even speak His name...

Every day got worse and worse,
And days turned into years,
Instead of hearing children laugh,
We heard gunshhots and tears..

What must we do to stop the crime?
That's in our schools today.
Let's let the lamb come back to school..

AND TEACH OUR KIDS RO PRAY!!!

(((scared))) thanks for sharing that...

I don't know if it's a question of RELIGION or of MORALITY, but I do know something is very wrong with our country. And I, for one, who have worked in public education for 21 years, am scared.

I'm sorry, I think it is very tragic, all of the school shootings, but strongly disagree that school prayer will fix the problem. IMO it is not more religion, but more morality, as readyforachange stated, that this country and our children need.

another thought...

schools are doing so much more in terms of CHARACTER education than they ever did in the past, at least in my area. We have programs to teach social skills, and character development. This was not an essential part of the curriculum 20, 30 or 40 years ago...but for some reason, the school is responsible for teaching children what they are not learning at home: how to behave appropriately, get along with others, and be a caring, productive, cooperative member of society. This, to me, is very sad.

I agree we need to bring morality back. But many times that has to go hand in hand with prayer... we cannot discern what is moral without asking God for guidance - be that through scriptural readings, prayer, meditation, etc.
