From the New York Times:
Student Faces Town’s Wrath in Protest Against a Prayer
CRANSTON, R.I. — She is 16, the daughter of a firefighter and a nurse, a self-proclaimed nerd who loves Harry Potter and Facebook. But Jessica Ahlquist is also an outspoken atheist who has incensed this heavily Roman Catholic city with a successful lawsuit to get a prayer removed from the wall of her high school auditorium, where it has hung for 49 years.
It says in the nytimes article that at ten years old, she became an atheist. Clearly, the girl is made of sterner stuff, and not just of sugar and spice.
|Yep, that's Jessica|
As local florists refused to deliver flowers to her, I asked a friend to deliver one to her:
You rock, Jessica.
