I completely agree with Lexi Shorey; we need to uphold John Hancock's words and “nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us.” I have noticed that Christianity is taken somewhat more lightly in America today than in the past. The U.S. was brought up on Christianity. If this country still valued Christianity today, there would be fewer gangs because they might be saved by the word of God. I hope every Christian who reads this feels the same way I do when I say that Christianity should be brought back to the U.S. and to all its schools.
