The parents of seven Virginia schoolchildren are going to court over a mandatory moment of silence in state classrooms.
The American Civil Liberties Union filed a federal lawsuit today in Alexandria, saying the new law violates the constitutional mandate for the separation of church and state.
The state Superintendent of Public Instruction last week advised teachers to NOT mention prayer as an option for the moment of silence.
But Attorney General Mark Earley then declared teachers dont have to refrain from suggesting it.
The U-S Supreme Court ruled this week that student-led prayer at high school football games was UNconstitutional.

((Even last minute court appeals couldn't save Gary Graham. "He's dead." But while the battle to save Graham's life played out in the courts, it was the supporters of the convicted murderer who made their feelings known first. Protestors broke through barricades, burned flags, and were dragged away as the countdown to the execution rolled on. It was a tense scene outside the Huntsville Texas Prison after the US Supreme Court, in a five to four vote, refused to grant a stay in the case. Then, just moments away from the end of the death row inmate's life, lawyers filed yet another court appeal. This one a civil lawsuit against the Texas Parole Board. He had a rambling last statement... Graham pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery back in the 1980's, but never admitted to killing Bobby Lambert. He claimed all along that the single eyewitness who identified him as the killer was mistaken. The case has drawn national attention. In the end, being the most contentious death penalty case to confront Gov. George W. Bush since he announced his run for the White House George W Bush R-Presidential Candidate.))

And their rescue is our video of the day.
