Normally I don’t share my “fan mail” with you because usually it’s few and far between and I don’t like to publicly pat myself on the back. But yesterday I received an e-mail from a man named Chuck. More importantly, Chuck is a parent and he brought up some very valid points that I thought were important enough to share with my readers…
This is from: Chuck
My hat is off to you, brother. Your viewpoint is a lot like my own. Something does need to be done regarding the violence and other problems within our schools. These problems deal not only with unruly or just plain frigging stupid students but also the schools, school boards, teachers, and I believe most importantly parents. They need to wake the hell up and smell the napalm! I have three kids who have grown up and attended school in six different states throughout this country. They know my unwavering policies regarding morals, you know, right from wrong. Never had a problem because their mom and I became involved and stayed involved in their day-to-day activities. Not to suppress them or their ideas on different aspects of growing and maturing but to instill in them the belief that if something feels down deep inside that something is wrong. IT IS! It may be legal or actually on the verge of becoming so, if it doesn’t feel right it ain’t. Your web site. The info that you have available. Your own opinions and beliefs are commendable. How can you make more people aware of the existence of your site? That’s the question. Do so and you could be a huge part in getting info out to people who may not be aware of some of the lunacy going on in our schools. Thank you, brother. Keep it up. God bless you.
Thank you, Chuck. If only more parents were like you we wouldn’t be having these problems. But to answer your question there is something you can do to make more people, specifically parents aware of my site. Show them my site. E-mail it to them. Physically show them. Whatever it takes. Now, of course, they don’t need to see the political stuff or the goofy stuff but they definitely need to see all the stuff I’ve posted about schools in the past 5 years. Specifically, my stuff about Columbine, Red Lake, Marshfield, Andrew Osantowski, other School violence, my watchlist, even hazing, and most importantly my Hate Mail so they can see what kids are writing about these days. Not to over-inflate my own sense of self-worth but parents need to be made aware of what’s going on in their schools and possibly with their own kids. Maybe then can these problems be avoided.
Thanks again Chuck for writing and this time it was my pleasure.
