From the article:

During the public comment portion of Monday’s meeting, Crawley explained that her daughter was assigned to write about her grandfathers -- who both served in the armed forces -- for the school’s Veterans Day program.

She stated that after her daughter was assigned to write the poem, the youngster became frustrated. To help ease some of that tension, Renata, along with the rest of the family, helped the young girl construct the poem.

“My daughter struggled writing about her grandfathers when writing this poem,” stated Renata.“She is 6 years old and does not know much about war or the armed forces.”

Crawley said the family worked together on the poem, with her 6-year-old daughter assisting with rhyming words to make the poem “her style.”

While creating the poem, THE FAMILY decided to write about the little girl’s grandfather, Bud, who carried a prayer stone to Vietnam with him, which inspired the now controversial lines that would later be censored.

“He prayed to God for strength, he prayed to God for peace,” the poem was supposed to say.

So the little girl in question didn't even write that part of the poem. Who wants to bet some politically motivated preacher is behind this? Crossroads or New Manna anyone? Hey, we're gonna get on Fox again! Watch this!

This childs parents should be prosecuted for child abuse. They put ther child in harms way to promote their religous and political beliefs with no concern for the childs welfare, not thinking or caring what the child would have to go through. A six year old has no concept of religon or God beyond what their parents and church have forced on them. It should be illegal to indoctrinate a child like this until they are old enogh to reason.
You are lucky

You are lucky it isn't against the law to be an idiot, oh by the way, learn to spell. These folks are GREAT parents, if you knew them you would know that but you don't so you spout off about something you know nothing about. Typical keyboard commando.

I'm sorry, what word did you think they had misspelled? I found no error. Perhaps we should reconsider who is the idiot here considering your use of grammar and commas. I'm still waiting to find out which church cooked this idea up. And do GREAT parents do their child's homework assignments?

Jesus, what a bunch of idiots. Today's paper filled with more of the same idiot postings from yammering Christians. Once again, the little girl did not write the poem. Her family did. The united states was not founded as a Christian nation, most of the founding fathers were Deists, not Christians. This is nothing but a big sh&t pot being stirred up by the churches to get publicity. Let it go.

Religion not religon, for starters....This little girl is 6 years old. If parents would stop running around having their second childhoods and stay home with their children a little more, the children would feel as loved and cherished as this little one. She, at least, has a history to share from her grandfathers. Jealous much?

Wow, how judgmental. one typographical error and you want to crucify the poor person. Typical christian behavior for sure. Shoot the messenger and ignore the message. I'm sure you are perfect and never make a mistake. Of course, I never had grandfathers, so yes, I am so jealous.

Remember, the only control we have over the Superintendent is voting for the School Board that hired her.

Before you say anything about my post, may I suggest you read your own. You were "Crucifying" me for my grammar also. By the way, I make mistakes everyday and so do you my friend "I'm sorry, what word did you think they had misspelled? I found no error." Have a great day. Your mom now has your chicken noodle soup ready, then nap time.

Well, there they go again. Apparently now a teacher wrote the poem, no wait a parent. No a teacher. Well at any rate not the kid. What a sad statement on the intelligence of McDowell county.

Headline should have read:

Local Christians put fingers in ears.

Picture of belligerent ignoramus.

All the name calling, religious & political debate aside. If the man had not read or heard about the poem, or the content of the program, why was he upset and threatening to call the ACLU?

How was the child chosen? Was it a contest to see who had the best poem? This is more an issue of fairness and a teacher's child being given an advantage over others, than it is a religious issue. I guess some people can't see the forest for the trees.

Exactly, in my opinion this would be a form of cheating. I believe the parents had good intentions, but if she is 6 let her write what a 6 year old thinks. After all its about the kids not the parents or family.

Are you serious?? I don't care what church shows support it is her RIGHT to read her poem!! Parents are expected to help with homework! How many kids win the science fair without parents help? This family did nothing wrong by helping her on an assignment! The superintendent was in the wrong by assuming she can take a right away from a child! Martini needs to pack her graphics and head back to the coast!!!!
