Valedictorian's - Ethics vs. the world

You know... every now and then I have to add a little "you've got to be kidding" to my chronicles.

Why are schools taking the microphones away from their own valedictorian's who happen to mention or thank God for their successes in life? Or for mentioning that they haven't received the best education because they aren't taught about ethics.

It doesn't matter if it's God or Buddha... why are we restricted in mentioning that higher power we each may or may not feel deep inside that gives us lift and encouragement. Hell... it could be a stuffed frog or a statue of Elvis.

What really gets me is that if someone stood up there and DID say that a stuffed frog or Elvis helped get them where they are, blah, blah, blah... they would probably get applauded for being unique and daring. But mention God and LOOK OUT... now we're pushing the envelope way too far.

Funny... imagine how our laws, constitution, amendments, etc. would sound if we were to start over from the very beginning TODAY.

We'd all be wearing t-shirt that read Gays are Great, God is dead and Killing is Cool. Ironically, I could care less if someone is gay or God fearing or not... although I do have issues with those who kill others, but when it comes to things like abortion, I feel it should be taken to the people and voted upon; but my personal belief is that it's a decision a grown adult should be able to make in the first trimester. But that's just my personal opinion. :)

(I'm one of those people who lean more conservative but not in every venue and not hard-core)

What I would like to point out is this... I'm not necessarily a Christian myself; I believe there is something/someone who is a greater power than I, but I have yet to determine what he/she/it is.

Some people who are reading this will either a) immediately seek me out to convert me to Christianity or b) seek me out to call me a free thinker who needs to get far away from God and the like.

I hate people like that... and I'm sure HATE qualifies me for a 10 year time-out while child molesters get a slap on the wrist and a court hearing where-in the parents must pay for not allowing the criminal MORE time with their child.

Society is backwards... and people are beginning to open their eyes and see the truth. In an effort to bring more to their side, those who are making these poor decisions and pushing us are only making us go further and further away.

I am my own person... oh... and America is great!! :)

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
