That night, Molly and Liam attended the Bar Mitzvah of a friend’s son. “Didn’t Noah look so grown up tonight?” Molly said on the way home. “He did,” answered Liam. “I can’t believe how time flies.

On Monday morning, Molly went to her job as a kindergarten teacher. As part of her lesson plan, she was teaching the Pledge of Allegiance to her five- and six-year-old students. “Are you breaking the law if you don’t believe in God?” asked one young student when they got to the line, "One nation, under God." “No, Lyle,” answered Molly. “Our government is not run by religious officials. We are free to practice our beliefs on an individual basis. That means that we don’t all have to belong to the same religion.” The term theocracy, comes from the Greek and means ʺrule of (A) God ʺ. Later that morning, one of Molly’s students asked, “Why don’t we have school on Saturday or Sunday?” “We don’t have school on Saturday or Sunday so we have the time to go to church or temple if we so choose,” replied Molly.

In preparation for the trip, Molly taught her students about Native American culture. As Molly hung a poster on the classroom wall, a student asked, “What’s that?” “It’s a sacred object, Henry,” answered Molly. “Native Americans make and use them in various ways.” The word (A) totem is derived from the Ojibwe word odoodem, meaning ʺhis kinship group." While loading the bus for the field trip, Molly arranged the students in boy/girl order. Just before the bus driver headed off, Henry said, “My dad said that there are some people who keep boys and girls separate at their churches, because they don’t think boys and girls should worship together.” “Yes, Henry, that’s true, but I think it’s okay if boys and girls sit together on the bus. We’re not worshipping; we’re taking a field trip,” replied a frazzled Molly.

In Orthodox Judaism, men and women are seated and pray together. Sex segregation has been practiced in religions such as Islam. When the students got to the ruins, Henry couldn't contain himself. “Look at this!” he shouted as he ran around the site. “It looks like the Native Americans probably sat here!” “Yes, Henry. It’s believed that they had religious ceremonies in this very spot. That would make it a very special place, wouldn’t it?” said Molly. “Sure does!” Henry shouted.

It was a different culture.” “Do all of us have to have the same religion as our president does?” asked Alice. “No, Alice. We’re allowed to believe whatever we choose to, even if it’s different than what our president believes,” smiled Molly.

When she received Alice’s essay, Molly couldn’t help but smile. “I learned that we don’t have to believe what our president does. Even if our president didn’t believe in God at all, we still could because our government is not the boss of us, except when it comes to sending us to jail or making us pay taxes,” wrote Alice. Molly shared the sweet essay with Liam, who remarked, “Smart girl, that Alice.” “She sure is,” replied Molly.
