CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman County’s schools were visited by riders from the Alabama Sons of Liberty, Christian Motorcycle Association and Cullman County Wranglers Saturday morning as part of this year’s Pray and Pledge Ride. The riders visited Addison last weekend and will be riding in Morgan County next weekend. Saturday morning’s tour started at the Cullman County Child Development Center and continued on to Vinemont, West Point, Harmony, Cold Springs, Good Hope, Hanceville, Welti, Holly Pond and Parkside before finishing up at Fairview. The riders recited the Pledge of Allegiance and said a prayer for each school they visited.

Sons of Liberty President Joe Alverson is excited to continue the event this year and has been happy to see the community so supportive of their cause.

“This is probably the 10th year we’ve done it and last weekend we rode out and blessed Addison and set the pledge out there, this week we’ll do Cullman County and next weekend we’ll be in Morgan County. We’re being supported by the Cullman County Wranglers, and we do it simply because they don’t do the pledge in schools anymore and as the Sons of Liberty that’s kind of what we’re about,” Alverson said. “We’ve also got the Christian Motorcycle Association with us. They don’t allow prayer in schools anymore either and we’re Christians also. Those are two things that they’ve taken out of school that really need to be in there. When you look around at the world nowadays, you need God to go to Wal-Mart, much less school every day. So, it’s just to pray for the schools to have an event-free year and to ask God to put his hands around the schools to protect them because they need it.”
