Drove 600 miles to Parris Island, South Carolina to see my cousin graduate from the USMC. This was my first military graduation exercise. What a wonderful time we had, until.......
The Marine Corps band started the proceedings by playing the march Onward Christian Soldiers.
Also, are the prayers getting longer at these events or am I getting more atheist?
After the service, oops, I mean graduation, my cousin showed me this wonderful small bible the chaplain gave every Marine to carry with them.
I've noticed more and more public events are becoming religious. My grandson goes to a public school. He invited my wife and me to listen to his high school band and chorus play and sing "Holiday Songs". I left after the third song glorifying god on the highest.
Am I the only one noticing this trend? What's your experience?
