Shame on Them!!

flags.jpgIt is unbelievable that people show their ignorance right out there in front to be ridiculed.  How stupid can they be?  Well here's a story for you.  There is a town in North Carolina that banned the wearing of any countries flag on September 11th 2007.  The reason is they couldn't decide what flags could be worn and which ones shouldn't. 

On the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, students at one high school were not allowed to wear clothes with an American flag.

Under a new school rule, students at Hobbton High School are not allowed to wear items with flags, from any country, including the United States.

Neptunus Lex was able to sum up my thoughts on this with one sentence.

Let me make this one very simple for you, supe: Kids can wear the flag of any country that gave them birth, freedom and opportunity.

Well said Lex.  There are more than a few that could learn a thing or two from you.

Since this story broke they have lifted the ban on wearing any flags on their clothing.  A little late... you think?

My older son has started kindergarten this year and the political correctness speeches have already begun.  Please people this is getting ridiculous.  To be truly politically correct don't we have to teach our children everything about other cultures and countries?  The school board is limiting what they will teach our children.  We send our children to school to get an education.  The true meaning of education is (and yes I looked it up):  The act, process, or art of imparting knowledge and skill.  I don't see anywhere is there that it says we should pick and choose what we teach them.  By teaching our children other cultures they will grow to be compassionate and respectful to others.  By not teaching them I believe that we are limiting them before they even begin.
