Random Tuesday - If you make enough noise, they WILL listen!

In recent Florida news, a professor at FAU asked the class to write the name Jesus onto a piece of paper, put it on the floor and stomp on it.  One student refused and the school suspended the student from the class.

Really FAU?  If you had asked them to write Mohammad's name you'd be immediately entered into a hit list and American lives would potentially be lost in a middle east uprising.  If you had mentioned many other religious figures you would be raked across the coals so how DARE you think it's okay to do this to Jesus?  

News stories can be found here, here and here.

After a week of national outcry, FAU reversed their decision to suspend the student and all charges were dropped.

It disturbes me on multiple levels that an outcry had to happen for FAU to reverse their decision but this serves to reinforce my point that if you make enough noise you can effect change.

The second story that caught my attention this week was of a young lady in her Sophomore year of high school who got pregnant and recently had her baby.  She wanted to return to school and asked the nurse for a place to pump.  The nurse refused and said she would have to go 8 hours a day without pumping.  Now as a mom who has had three children and returned to work and had a nice comfy spot to pump I was outraged.  This girl was trying to do her best for her child and return to school.  Lucky for her within a week of this hitting the news waves, the school reversed their decision.  Isn't that awesome!?!

Hope ya'll have a great Tuesday!
