Each year, the President declares January 16th to be Religious Freedom Day, and calls upon Americans to “observe this day through appropriate events and activities in homes, schools, and places of worship.”
This day is a day to observe all worships of God in his many forms. It does not matter if you are Christian, Baptist, Roman-Catholic, Buddhist, or Muslim; you have the right to worship.
This day is a time to look past our religious differences and unite as a whole. It is a time that we can ask questions about other religions, to promote and protect students’ religious expression rights by informing educators, parents, and students about these liberties. Most importantly, Religious Freedom Day is a day of acceptance; in which we look past the religious labels and focus on what’s inside.
