You're probably thinking, that Bruce Mikells he must be a real Bible Thumper. Not really, I do have my own relationship with a higher power and it's personal just like I pray yours is. However, when it comes to religion and government why must common sense always be totally overlooked? I don't think that Cross was put there to offend and I for one would not be offended if other faiths and beliefs were given representation at this memorial that honors those who have fallen in service to our country.

A federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that a San Diego war memorial marked by a four-story-tall Christian cross on public land violates the U.S. constitutional ban on government endorsement of religion.

I DO understand the reasoning behind the courts decision but instead of saying , "Take the Cross Down" why don't we honor the beliefs of all the brave men and women who served our country? Again I ask what is wrong with common sense?
