On America Live today, Trace Gallagher reported on a story out of North Carolina, where an elementary school forced a first-grader to remove references to God from a poem she planned to read to fellow students.

The student at West Marion Elementary School was set to recite a Veterans Day poem to honor her grandfather.

The line that was removed read, “He prayed to God for peace, he prayed to God for strength.”
