    government shall not establish any official religion. Therefore, as long as the government doesn't make it mandatory for the students to pray, they should be allowed to at least have that choice. One minute set aside for a student to either have a moment of silence or to have their own prayer isn't hurting anyone, as long as students are not forced to pray. By taking away that right, it is violating their rights as American citizens and their right to have freedom of religion. In 1962, The Supreme Court

I'd be lying if I said a smile didn't crack my face the moment I read those words, but no matter what problem arises, death is never a good solution. Well, at least one that leaves both parties satisfied. The newsstand I was situated at had a clear view of the new Bay Bridge, which had only been approved for construction
