Remembrance Day is coming and my significant other and I were talking the other night and she said that when she was at school, around this time, one of her teachers got the class to wrote a letter to veterans asking why they should be remembered...
My respinse, which bordered on explosive isn't repeatable on here as it's a family site, but it ended somewhere around the volume of an enraged elephant with the word WHAT?
At first I thought she was joking but she was quite quite serious.
Having worked in education for 7 years, if I heard a colleague saying that was what they were proposing to do, I'd have had serious concerns...
I'm utterly disgusted and hope that I never cross paths with that teacher!
Although it does kind of explain why so few people lately seem to be wearing poppies
I'm wearing mine and will be remembering those who sacrificed so much for my liberty!
