"Blame Congress, not Mr. Newdow"

Times Argus: Vermont News & Information

Here is a great letter to the editor printed in a Vermont newspaper. It reminds us that we are not alone - others are willing to stand up for reason too. It also does an outstanding job of educating the public about the history of the pledge. I would bet that a majority of the American people believe that the god part was there from the beginning.

We could learn from this example and look for opportunities in our own communities to inform the public through similar letters in our local newspapers. Of course, this can be somewhat risky depending on where you live, but I find myself increasingly willing to take those risks.
