(TapWires) The Pennsylvania teenager wanted to offer thanksgiving to the Almighty for parents and coaches and teachers. But again, she could not, because it was against the law.
"Make us selfless. Make us just. Make us successful people, but more than that, make us good people," Moriah wanted to pray. But that too, was determined to be unlawful.
his is the America - the land of the free, the home of the brave. But it is also a place where a young teenager girl is not permitted to mention the name of Jesus Christ or anything remotely religious in a graduation speech at a public high school.
Moriah Bridges, a member of the 2017 graduating class, was asked to provide what they call the closing exercise at Beaver High School's graduation on June 2.
She crafted a lovely prayer that mentioned her "Heavenly Father" and her "Lord."
