Power Of The Written Word



It’s wrong to ignore wrong. That’s why I could not ignore the issue a couple of weeks ago when one of our sixth-graders was given an assignment to write about a person who had changed the world.

Michael wanted to write about Jesus, but was not allowed to do so. My letter to the editor must have done some good, because Michael is now allowed to write his paper.

There is power in the written word, but throwing our opinions around and trying to make things difficult for people is not the way to handle most things. However, we have to stand up for that which is right in the midst of a culture that does everything it can to wipe Jesus out of the pages of history and off of the hearts of our children. I just can’t keep quiet about that, and you shouldn’t either.
