1. kudos to Judge Crabb for her courage
I was having a discussion on prayer in school with my 13 year old mentee yesterday.
His family is strong Catholic. He couldn't understand why there wasn't prayer in school.
I told him, pray all you want by yourself, but once the school or teacher leads it then it violates my rights and the constitution.
Long discussion followed.
When I said 'How would you feel if you were Jewish and everyday you had to say a prayer recognized Jesus as God?' he got it.

don't know if this story is appropriate, but it was so interesting to see him think and reason this out.
