WHY IS TODAY SPECIAL?

WHY IS TODAY SPECIAL?

Well, it’s not my birthday. It’s not my anniversary. And it’s not Christmas.

It’s…Bring Your Bible to School Day. Unfortunately, that’s not happening here in Canada.

Many, many, decades ago, I was allowed to read the Bible and recite the Lord’s Prayer in public school each morning. I took for granted that this everyday occurrence would always be part of our Canadian heritage/culture. Not so.

However, today, schools all over America have climbed on board.

Jim Daly, President of Focus on the Family, is:

“…celebrating that more than 100,000 students are expected to

participate in #‎BringYourBible to School Day.”

I’m celebrating with my American neighbors that (at least for today) children are “allowed” to bring their Bibles to school.

I was especially encouraged when I read this quote written by Brytney, a fourteen-year-old girl:

“If you believe in God…take a stand, be like thousands of others and bring your Bible to school.”

Okay, so I’m too old to attend public or even high school, but I’m not too old to take a stand.

KNOCKOUT - TRACY CAMPBELL'S ARTWORK - JUNE 22, 2011

Copyright – Tracy Campbell – Knockout

Caught up in a game of tag, seven-year-old, Stevie and his classmate Rachel strayed from the zone. The safe zone—a crowded schoolyard patrolled by a lone teacher.

 

Three bullies circled the pair, cornering them like prey. Stevie froze. Rachel latched onto Stevie’s hand and squeezed.

 

The thugs taunted Stevie like they’d done for months. “Hey, sissy,” said one. Continue reading “Seven-Year-Old, Boy Whipped by Thugs” »
