Let deity back in schools

SHARE Let deity back in schools

Hurrah for the Colorado Board of Education for standing up for our national motto: In God We Trust. It even opens its meetings with a prayer. It has set an example for us to follow.

When prayers were no longer allowed in our Utah schools, it was the decline for our state and nation. A lady from the former Czechoslovakia said, "That is how it all started in our country. They took prayer out of our schools, and our nation fell."

We should thank the Colorado Board of Education for its desire to have youths learn to have civic virtues. "The words we pass on to our young can shape our destiny."

Let's put "In God We Trust" back into our lives and our education system so our children can sing all four verses to "America," "The Star Spangled Banner," and we, as a nation, may stay free.
