Anthem, prayer missing from graduation

Regarding graduation high school class 2012 in Camden, S.C. and all the other schools in the state: I attended the affair and was appalled that there was no prayer or that the National Anthem was not played.

I know that there may be a few that would complain about having a prayer, but I assure you that there are 10 times ...
