A letter found from the past

Dear Editor,

This article was inherited from my father back in the ‘70s. Author unknown.

“Going Backward

“In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth, and we lived with Faith in God.

“On that same faith, our forefathers founded this land of ours. We went to school and started the day with prayers to our Father in Heaven and a salute to the American Flag; One nation, indivisible was what we used to say, but our Faith was strong, so the pledge was changed; One Nation, under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

“But our Supreme Court has ruled this way: ‘We cannot pray to start the day.’ The next rule from the court must be:

“Send in all your money. We must remove ‘In God we trust’ from all our legal tender.”
