A national tour featuring decorated veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan won’t be stopping at Forest Lake Area High School today as planned, after school leaders abruptly canceled the visit.
It looks to me like the principal just doesn’t want to deal with any controversy at all, or make an even remotely tough decision. How nice. What good life lessons he’s imparting to his young charges. And to make it worse, all he’s facing is pissy backlash from OTHER AMERICANS.
On the other hand, want to meet a guy who isn’t afraid of confronting his (and our) adversaries? He has more on the line than limp-dicked protests and mild controversy. He lives in a place with life and death consequences for dissent. Apparently he’s not fazed by it, and if he is, he rucks up and does it anyway.
Now there’s a lesson for you.
