I did not have a "tizzy fit", I merely asked why the girls were being denied the right to sing the song (via email no less- hard to have a "tizzy fit" via email).
The girls were not "banned" from singing the song- they were "encouraged to choose a different song- one that did not have the word "Jesus in it".
This song represents a woman who lets her faith get her through a difficult time. There are so many of our students (and adults) that use drugs, alcohol, and other self-destructive measures to cope with problems, maybe a little faith would cut down on the funerals for kids that OD. In closing, this is really a big deal for nothing. There was NO DRAMA and no "tizzy fits", but I am glad that you all have the right to speak."
