Robbery and Silent Night

Here in small town Montana they do not worry about silly stuff like locking the door to the elementary school. Now, I know that it is over 100 years old but seriously! LOCK the DOOR! I got a note home yesterday saying; "Do not worry but there was a robbery at the school last night." They took a few computers and the cash box from the cafeteria (what school still uses a cash box? ) Anyway, it also mentioned there was no forced entry. So does that mean they just walked in? hmmmmmm

Another thing we don't worry about is the whole "Separation of Church and State" thing. I attended my first elementary school choir concert tonight. We heard some of the normal songs like "Sleigh Ride", and "Jingle Bells". We also heard "Silent Night", and " Mary had a baby." I wanted to get up and cheer! I was so excited, except I was afraid the A.C.L.U. was going to come crashing in and yell at me to stop.

I think I am going to send a note to school with Nathan saying I would appreciate it if they had a prayer at the beginning of class. Who knows, they might go for it.

  1. Maybe I'll start taking the keys out of the ignition when I park my car. Sheesh...what is small town Hamilton coming to? I want to know why money was even in the safe? Isn't that what a bank is for???

    As for the concert music selections, I say a silent prayer of thanks each time I hear a religious song sung in our Performing Arts Center. So hah...Prayer in schools still does exist!
