The Ten Commandments

To the Editor:

People cannot believe how school kids are going in schools shooting students and teachers.

I say it started after our government took the Ten Commandments out of schools.

Thou shalt no kill. Thou shalt not steal. Honor thy father and mother. The Ten Commandment in school was the only day a lot of kids who parents did not attend church would ever hear them.

God’s law will help man’s law. Even the animals that kill each other, when they were on Noah’s ark got along for 40 days and 40 nights on the water under God’s care. For the people who don’t believe in God, that’s why time is B.C. and A.D. — the real reason for Christmas and Easter.

Bless you, in the name of Jesus.
