Can’t have it both ways

Dear Editor:

Trumpeted in this space was Referendum 3A without which, it was stated, the local school children would be deprived of learning; trumpeted also was its election. Many letters now are encouraging attendance to support the state’s top rated football team this weekend.

However, on Nov. 11, when free and living history was available to students at the Courthouse Plaza, not one parent or educator from the local schools chose to recommend through this media that students attend the Veterans Day celebration. It is not whether one endorses or opposes conflict, but rather it’s whether one demonstrates support and respect for the courageous people, who through their sacrifice, have made the election of any referendum or playing of any sporting event possible – that’s the veteran.

I believe this to be a sad commentary.
