To the Editor:
I find life really amusing, you see people running around boasting about doing something about bullying in today’s schools. A good example, how our society runs around trying to push an old motto on its people.
I still have difficulty with the “In God We Trust” motto. I can only trust in one God for I can only speak for myself.
I still remember the gathering of the people in the Anderson County Courthouse on the night a decision was to be made to the God signs on the building. I still can see the rage of bullying in their eyes before the commissioners voted.
Next came the placing of the sign on the General Sessions Court building in Oak Ridge.
Why must a “In God We Trust” sign be placed on a courthouse?
I am still trying to figure out by whose authority 12 county commissioners can choose whose god they represent. The more disturbing thing is that I, a non-walking individual, cannot even find wheelchair parking many times, but everyone takes my money.
Do suppose if I pasted a dollar bill on the back of my wheelchair, since it has the motto “In God We Trust,” things would be better.
