Hunt-Jackson Elementary School in Temecula, California a class was presented with the homework assignment of going home and bringing to school the next day something that represents the families Christmas tradition.
Well, six year old Brynn Williams did just that and brought to school the Star of Bethlehem which enhances the top of her families Christmas tree. Brynn went on and explained that during Christmas her family remembers the birth of Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior. “Our Christmas tradition is to put a star on top of our tree,” the little girl said. “The star is named the Star ofBethlehem. The three kings followed the star to find baby Jesus, the Savior of the world.” Brynn’s teacher interrupted her and said, “Stop right there! Go take your seat.” And was not allowed to finish her presentation; she was going to recite the Bible verse, John 3:16. " For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Brynn Williams thought she did something wrong and the following day met with the principal. The principal then confirmed that the teacher did the right thing. **Now let’s stop right here.** This innocent little girl who was given an assignment of sharing her families tradition was scorned and for what? Doing what she was told to do? The teacher should have taken into consideration what was asked of the children realizing she has a class full of children who represents different backgrounds as well as religious beliefs. The district violated Brynn’s constitutional rights! This could have been your child. Make a difference by passing this blog on and by raising awareness in YOUR children. The children are our future.
