                  WE AS A NATION NEED TO RETURN TO GOD

  (Mr. DUNCAN of South Carolina asked and was given permission to 
address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. DUNCAN of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of a 
gentleman who is with me in the Capitol. He was the high school 
valedictorian at Liberty High School.
  This summer, during his valedictorian address, he ripped up his 
approved speech and delivered The Lord's Prayer in defiance of the 
school district's decision to no longer include prayer at graduation.
  This is someone that reminds us that we as a Nation need to return to 
God. I am thankful for him and the inspiration of his generation.
