What Difference Does it Make?

by: Patricia Prince Tunnell,

My first day of first grade started with the Lord's Prayer. I had never heard it and was the only one who did not know it. The girl next to me told her mommy. Her mommy told her not to play with me because I was going to hell. My mommy told me that although it was not our prayer, it was a nice prayer and that I had to be respectful when the class said it. The little girl and I graduated from high school together. We never played together. What a shame, we could have been friends.
