Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be heroes?

I heard a story on the way home from work this evening that made my blood boil. It isn’t something I typically blog about, but I am going to write about this one.

Just a hypothetical question: What would happen if parents protested their child’s school for teaching their children how to use a condom? Well we have seen what happens. The school principal would basically say “get over it”. Now consider an organization like Vets for Freedom National Heroes Tour who are touring schools in order to allow students the opportunity to meet members representing our national military services who have been serving our country. Wouldn’t you, as a parent, welcome these heroes to come into your school and speak? “Hold on a minute”, say some parents in Forest Lake High School in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Even though one of the soldiers is an alumni from this particular High School. Guess what? This school principal is bowing to the pressure of these protesting parents. Read about it at Michelle Malkin’s blog site below.
