Meet Me At The Pole~


Today, my youngest, along with many fellow classmates, teammates, members of FCA, and countless others are gathering this morning before school to do this...

They will be joining hands, circling the flag pole, and praying-some silently, some out loud.  They will join many others across the country, participating in a National Day of Prayer.

Some will agree with what they are doing and applaud them, some will not.  I am just thankful they have a choice!

OMIGOSH I'm so glad they're still doing this! I remember doing this when I was in school and it really did let you know who was with you in the rough spots in school. Who you could trust & talk too.

I loved it. What a fabulous turn out.

How wonderful that is! Good for them. And they absolutely should still have a choice to do this!!

As a former middle school teacher I applaud these kids. I remember praying with my students on 9/11 and not caring if we got in trouble.

I LOVE this! Our Christian radio station always has listeners calling in sharing stories like this today- I love to see children praying especially.
