This topic may have some disagreeing with me but that is okay. I feel as thought many people are outraged by the amount of school shootings that take place, as am I. My question is, when did this shift happen?
Growing up and going to school, my generation was allowed to just be kids. We were not afraid of going to school and being stabbed or shot at. We also stood every morning and said the pledge of allegiance and had prayer. In elementary, we lined up at the door to the classroom and said the blessing before walking to the cafeteria for lunch.
Today, we have no prayer or pledge in schools because it “offends” a certain group of people. We took God out of schools and expect calm and peace. This country was founded on Christian principles. If those who come from here from other countries want o change our country then why did they really come? No other country has changed their structure and foundation to accommodate other country’s citizens who have moved there. I am all for people legally coming to America for a better life but with that comes American values that never should have been compromised. Americans have given in and given up God in schools and family at the core and now we have a major epidemic of school shootings, bullying, and other social tragedies.
The Bible gives us plain instructions in Proverbs 22:6, ” Train up a child on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”
How are we training our children? We’ve taken prayer from school and introduced violence. I for one believe God should be put back where He belongs.
