"Author Unknown"

This email seems to be making the rounds. I like it so much that I'm posting it here.

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!

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I've seen this afore...and its sad...cry is the answer to yur question...

After a school shooting or stabbing...people always ask..."Why did this happen?"...well...this prose is part of the answer...and I believe the other part of the answer is back at the kids homestead.....

I've seen this before too. It is extremely sad because it's so true.

There's another one going around that asks "God, why did you let this happen?" regarding the school shootings that have happened in our country. God answers: "I'm very sorry, but you have removed me from your schools. How can I watch over you?" It makes a valid point too.
