Let­ters to the Ed­i­tor

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS -

at school, and let them have a hidden joy kept secret and take home, to per­haps sur­prise their Mother or Fa­ther, or who­ever is there for them that they love and ad­mire? It doesn’t seem to mat­ter for those that are a part of the Al­bert McMa­hon Ele­men­tary School team.

So, how about this...Al­bert McMa­hon Ele­men­tary School team, let the kids make their prize to take home for whomever they want to give it to, they re­ally want to you know. If you don’t eat meat, then don’t par­take. If you are afraid of Hal­lowe’en, then don’t dress up. I knew Hal­lowe’en was un­der at­tack a few years ago. So, in some schools, it is no cos­tumes...it is now called “or­ange and black day” (how fun is that?) and the best hol­i­day and re­mem­brance of all, Christ­mas and in some schools, is now re­ferred to as the “win­ter hol­i­day”. But in all my years, I never imag­ined that Mother’s Day and Fa­ther’s Day would be struck down.

So, I have called this school and sent a letter to them also, to re­sist this over-the-top goofy no­tion of not let­ting kids make a spe­cial gift in their Grade 1 and 2 classes, for their Mom or Dad to help them honor Mother’s Day and Fa­ther’s Day. The only way we are go­ing to beat this po­lit­i­cally cor­rect non­sense is to stand up to it and chal­lenge it. I would en­cour­age any of you... Cana­di­ans, im­mi­grants, stu­dents, moth­ers, fa­thers, grand­par­ents, friends etc., those who be­lieve in our Mother’s Day and Fa­ther’s Day cel­e­bra­tion, to write and state your opin­ion and mail to this ad­dress...AL­BERT MCMA­HON ELE­MEN­TARY SCHOOL 32865 Cherry Av­enue, Mis­sion B.C, V2V-2V1 or call the school at 604-8260274. Some­thing they for­get is that we all pay the money to our re­spec­tive gov­ern­ments who have all the say and make all the rules for the school sys­tems across Canada.

I hope ev­ery Cana­dian who be­lieves in Mother’s Day and Fa­ther’s Day, will fight back and I hope this ridicu­lous de­ci­sion is re­versed. Ev­ery sin­gle child in this en­tire world and in this small BC school has a mother and a fa­ther. “Mother’s Day is a cel­e­bra­tion hon­or­ing the mother of the fam­ily, as well as moth­er­hood, ma­ter­nal bonds, and the in­flu­ence of mother’s in so­ci­ety” and I say, God bless ‘em!
