The principal of the school the student is now removed from tells media outlets that prayer is allowed in public schools. A YouTube video has been made with that student telling her account of what happened in that cafeteria.
A 5-year-old wanting to pray over her lunch while at an Oviedo, Fla. school was allegedly prevented from doing so by the lunch monitor. The family of the girl has posted a video to YouTube, with her telling her story in order to bring awareness to the situation. The school has insisted that the little girl does have the right to pray, as does every student in the school.
“The lunch teacher said, ‘You’re not allowed to pray,'” Gabriella Perez said in the YouTube video. “I said, ‘It’s good to pray.’ I tried to pray but I couldn’t because I was caught again. She said, ‘It’s not good.'”
Gabriella said that the monitor stopped her when she bowed her head to pray over her lunch, which is a family tradition. Her parents, Kathy and Marcos, fully believe their daughter’s story, even though the principal of the school said she could not find anyone to verify Gabriella’s story.
“She wanted to pray, but she’s a rule-follower,” Kathy said during a news conference. “I told her she did the right thing. I don’t doubt for a minute that my daughter is telling the truth.”
