I hope there’s video of this.
IN 2006 a young lady by the name of Brittany gave the valedictory speech at her graduation. Speakers must submit their speech prior to graduation for approval. She was told to rewrite it without the references to Jesus as her savior and inspiration. She agreed, then gave her original speech.
They cut the mike on her. The case gained national attention and Mark Levin wrote about her in his book, Liberty and Tyranny.
There were lawsuits regarding the incidence, but I can’t remember the outcome.
I love that she gave a short and sweet prayer, then invited the crowd to join her in the Lord’s Prayer. That way, had they cut the mike, the prayer was still heard.
Like I said, I hope there is video of this.
There is a similar story about a girl chosen to give the valedictorian address at graduation. She had to submit her address to the higher ups in school to make sure it was politically correct...no mention of God. At the end of her address she sneezed. Everyone in attendance said “God bless you.”
Maybe, just maybe, we can take this country back to where it belongs.
