I have to say what u said about it paying off is true. I started praying the prayer outlawed in school (Almighty God, I acknowledge my dependence upon thee and beesech thy blessing upon me & my peers, our parents, our teachers, and our country.) after the pledge when there was a few seconds of silence and it always seemed to make my day better. I challenge all of the people out there to try the same thing. It really works and u end up thinking about God the rest of the day.
