Adelena Chavarria started this petition to South Dakota State Senate and

It was recently passed by Governor Kristi Noem following footsteps of Kentucky's Governor Matt Bevin that ALL public schools will put up In God We Trust. It is now sweeping across the Nation. This is unconstitutional. Our founding fathers made our Constitution for the moral and just. They did not include a Religion because they realized that everyone believes differently or chooses not to and they wanted to protect that value. If this stays on walls there should also be fair representation of others faith ranging from Allah to Satan. We have the right to freedom of religion and this can make others feel persecuted or isolated because they believe differently or not at all. First Amendment states freedom of religion. Paraphrasing Thomas Jefferson "Separation of Church and State" in reference to Freedom of Religion, it should not have been allowed that anyone in office can pass a bill stating this must be erected 12 by 12 in all public schools. Everyone has the freedom of religion, it is what makes America great. Trampling on this freedom does not inspire patriotism. Forcing children to learn in a segregated institution does not inspire patriotism. We require fair representation of all Faiths and their God or Deity in 12 by 12 mural or plaque or not one faith. Schools should be focused on education not religion. We can not allow room for segregation. Children believe in all different kinds of religions and should feel accepted and not condemned walking into a school building. Children should be able to focus on learning without added distractions and without dealing with emotional, mental and spiritual warfare. We need to be sending the message of acceptance of all to such young minds. This Nation is great because we have embraced the idea of unique individuals living in harmony. This Nation will stay great by keeping the tradition of freedom and by allowing us our Constitutional rights.
