An atheist couple on Thursday appealed a federal judge's decision upholding the state's law requiring schoolchildren to observe a moment of silence at the start of the day.

David and Shannon Croft of Carrollton are appealing the decision to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals through their attorney, Dean Cook. Earlier this month, U.S. District Judge Barbara M.G. Lynn ruled the law was constitutional.
