Read this description first and then 'play' the attached song & slide show by clicking here.
The song you are about to listen to is from a Las Vegas Diamond Rio concert.
They received an immediate resounding standing ovation, and continue to do so every time they perform it!
Everyone who loves America should be thrilled to hear this song!
Although Diamond Rio has never before done a statement song, they felt compelled to record 'In God We Still Trust.'
But guess what? Sadly, major radio stations wouldn't play it because it was considered 'politically incorrect'.
Consequently, the song was never released to the public.
So America, see what you think.

Back in September 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren, a social studies school teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, did something not to be forgotten.
On the first day of school, with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal and the building supervisor, Ms. Cothren took all of the desks out of her classroom.
The kids came into the first period and there were no desks. They looked around and said, “Ms. Cothren, where’s our desk?” She replied, “You can’t have a desk until you tell me how you earn them.”
They thought, “Well, maybe it’s our grades.”
“No,” she said.
“Maybe it’s our behavior.”
And she told them, “No, it’s not even your behavior.”
And so they came and went in the first period, still no desks in the classroom. Second period, same thing, third period too. By early afternoon television news crews had gathered in Ms. Cothren’s classroom to find out about this crazy teacher who had taken all the desks out of the classroom.
The last period of the day, Ms. Cothren gathered her class. They were at this time sitting on the floor around the sides of the room. And she says, “Throughout the day no one has really understood how you earn the desks that sit in this classroom ordinarily.”
She said, “Now I’m going to tell you.”
Ms. Cothren went over to the door of her classroom and opened it, and as she did 27 U.S. Veterans wearing their uniforms, walked into that classroom, each one carrying a school desk. They then placed those school desks in rows, and then they stood along the wall. And by the time they had finished those desks, those kids for the first time I think perhaps in their lives, understood how they earned those desks.
Ms. Cothren said, “You don’t have to earn those desks. These guys did it for you. They put them out there for you, but it’s up to you to sit here responsibly, to learn, to be good students and good citizens, because they and many others like them paid a price for you to have that desk, and don’t ever forget it!”
Friends, I think some times we forget that the freedoms that we have are freedoms not because of celebrities. The freedoms we have are because of ordinary people who did extraordinary things. Who loved this country more than life itself, and who not only earned a school desk for a kid at the Robinson High School in Little Rock, but who earned a seat for you and me to enjoy in this great land we call home. This wonderful nation that we better love enough to protect and preserve with the kind of conservative, solid values and principles that made us a great nation.
“We live in the Land of the Free because of the Brave!”
“Always remember our Troops!”
