An Open Letter to the Board and Superintendent of East Side High School District of Silicon Valley,

Since I was in kindergarten I have said the Pledge of Allegiance. For the last few weeks, "under God" was taken out of the statement. I found myself profoundly saddened. In America the great religions of the world live side by side in peace. While in Egypt Christians are slaughtered, in China people of several faith are slaughtered... So how is removing "under God" a way of preserving unity. Rather by not opening discussion, distrust is fostered. America is great because of our ability to discuss and bring about understanding between our various faiths and people groups. I am deeply saddened.

I ask for a response to this trampling of free speech and religious freedom.
