Jessica Ahlquist, the brave student at Cranston High School in Rhode Island, has won her lawsuit.  The prayer banner in the Cranston High School gymnasium is coming down.

I have often referred to Jessica as the Harry Potter of atheism.  She is young, got thrust into a situation against adults who tried to bully her, and stuck it out with class.  She’s a hero.  She is a testament to how our movement is owned by the young as well as the old.  She is a big part of the future of this movement.

I know she reads this blog.  Leave praise for her in the comments or over at her web site.  She’s earned it.
