Part of our lives

By Irene Breashear

Dear Editor,

The Aug. 23 Herald-Leader contained the editorial, “Perry 10 Commandments: Buck stops with state board.”

I don’t personally think the buck stops with the state Board of Education.

The majority of the mountain people have used the Bible as a guideline in raising their families. The Ten Commandments have always been part of my life and the lives of many, many others in this country.

We intend to stand up for the right. We people of Perry County bought the framed Ten Commandments hanging on the classroom walls. The school board did not force teachers’ or others to do anything.

When we leave God out of our lives and the teaching of the Bible, we are leaving out the greatest gift to creation.
