Thursday is the National Day of Prayer.
For our nation to signify a special day for all Americans to pray is indicative of the current state of our government.
Americans, as well as every other individual who believes that their God is supreme, must pray everyday that we, as humans who have faith, will overcome the tyranny of ignorance and begin to recognize that we are all human, we all matter, we all deserve to live in a world where love is more important than money.
The Constitution of the United States guarantees our right to freedom of religion yet our government has denied that right to every American who enters the current system of education.
As Americans, we should be proud to pledge our allegiance to the flag that is a symbol of our freedom. Yet, children who attend public school are not taught to be proud of their country but to disrespect it and ignore those who have fought and died to protect it.
We have ignored the values that made this country great and have instead become concentrated on the profits of the companies that have reduced America to a market share in the “global economy”.
All of America’s children deserve to grow up in a country that values them and their ingenuity.
All of America’s children deserve an excellent education, guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.
All of America’s children deserve to know and understand that they are our greatest resource, not to be enslaved but to be free to discover, develop, and direct their gifts and talents towards becoming knowledgeable, concerned, actively engaged citizens.
When we Constitutionally guarantee every child in America the right to a free and public, excellent education that is developmentally appropriate, founded in the Arts, experiential, and delivered by knowledgeable, dedicated, educators who understand that everyone is gifted and talented and important to the success of America, in school communities that value every culture in their neighborhood, making the fabric of America strong, we will return to the values that made America great.
