Superintendent removes "God" from student poem

Some parents in North Carolina are outraged after officials at an elementary school forced a child to remove the word "God" in a poem honoring veterans in her family.

"He prayed to God for strength, he prayed to God for peace," said Renatta Crawley, Parent.

The six-year-old girl's mom read the poem at a packed school board meeting Wednesday night. Renatta Crawley told board members the superintendent removed those religious references before the child could read the poem at a Veteran's Day program.
