What is the official religion of the United States?

I strongly believe that should be the prominent question put forth to the Supreme Court since one's "feelings" on the issue of abortion is clearly based on one's mythology.

I did not start my public education until first grade.

I remember a little of kindergarten before getting measles, followed by mumps, capping it all off with chicken pox. At the end of all the quarantine, it was late spring of first grade.
There was a duck and cover drill, that happened once, that I can remember, amongst the many fire drills.
It was not until junior high school that I had ever seen a uniformed police officer in a school, my school. She commanded respect, and got it. (Sometimes, I can remember her name)
Most importantly, she never had a gun.
That was in my home town of Washington DC.
This was the last time that I have seen a uniformed police officer in my school.
We moved to the Maryland suburbs, where I finished school through graduation without ever seeing another uniformed police officer in my school.
I find it very disturbing to know that we have preadolescent to be a subject matter expert on how to survive an active shooter situation.
This is what we have become and allowed to happen.
