Now there is no Draft,

If the USA had a Draft, there would be and uproar of the People to get out of Afghanistan and Iraq.

I attended a private religious school and we were required to stand a pray to begin every day. Of course it didn’t take long for it became a mindless, meaningless exercise. Nobody can stop a student or a teacher from taking a moment to engage in a silent, personal, sincere prayer to whichever deity they believe in.

Apparently many people today aren’t much different than people of 2,000 years ago. They think the purpose of prayer is to show everybody how holy they are, and if you don't show your religion in public you're "of the devil".

"When you pray, don't be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them.… But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door…”– Jesus as quoted by Matthew

Again it is the DRAFT.

If High Schoolers were worried about being Drafted for Are ONGOING WAR in Asia, children in High school would get getter Grades, and the drop out Rate was like BOOM you are joining the Service the Drop out rate would CEASE.

the USA
America NEED the Draft. If you are a Child it will keep you in School and trying to go to College,
Without out it there are GANGS of under 18 people hanging around selling drugs and Killing each other.
If there was a DRAFT EVERY TIME one of these people were picked up by the Cops, they would be dropped off at the Enlistment Center DRAFTED and sent to Boot Camp.

It really is the answer to so many questions, including the populace would soon get involved with politics.

Do you think that removing school sanctioned prayer in 1962 has contributed to more school violence, like Columbine? Has it contributed to more family problems? How many school shootings were there prior to 1962? Was there much of a drug problem in schools prior to '62? Back then more kids have both mom & dad at home, married to each other. Do you think the percentage is that high today? I don't think so. At least God was acknowledged in schools back then, & it seemed to have as a result fewer student problems. Even if you don't believe in God, you cannot deny that things like school shootings, drugs, & more broken homes occur now than they did prior to 1962.
It is not the removal of Prayer.

It is the Removal of the Draft.

Believe me a lot more kids will be Preying if they are facing the draft if they fail to make a good GPA.

The problem isn't cutting prayer out of school. The problem is there is no discipline at home or at school. 50 years ago giving kids spankings at home or a light smack on the mouth when they got mouthy and disrespectful would correct the problem. No different than how a young child learns not to touch a hot stove burner, associate a little pain. Then america got over sensitive and made it pretty much impossible to spank ur kids without someone yelling child abuse. Our ancestors would put a boot in our ass and tell us to do something about. Over sensitive America. Old fashioned DISCIPLINE would solve 95% of the problem. How many school shooting were there prior to 1990...? Now there's 25 a year seemingly. DISCIPLINE YOUR KIDS!

My kid is 22yo. I have never spanked her. I have never laid anything but a loving hand on her. We talked about everything. She is not afraid of facing judgement from me. I listen to her and I do my best to understand. I have always respected her and her ways. I have corrected her countless times and not without explanations. She was disciplined with deep thought and understanding and patience. She is now an adult and is not only my daughter but one of my very best friends.
Point is: spare the rod and use your brain.
