Teacher Admits She ‘Prayed Out Loud’ During Violent Tornado

“I did the teacher thing that we’re probably not supposed to do. I prayed — and I prayed out loud,” she said in an interview with NBC News following the violent storm.

Pray on teachers. Our children need all the prayer they can get especially during a deadly tornado. To threaten her job is ludicrous beyond description.

She did what all teachers should do -- call upon the mercy and protection of the the Almighty. She should do it publicly and she should encourage her students to do so. Isn't a part of education to educate? Teachers teach.
