What do kids learn about politics in school?
Hmmmm. Not only didn't anything I said at home sink in, but apparently she was getting a straight one-sided view at school. Now, I know this is happening in other parts of the country, but somehow I was under the impression that things would be different here. I guess not.
Instead of (or in addition to) learning about Cindy Sheehan at school, why don't they learn about Lena Haddix?
Who, you say?
Lean Haddix, at age 72, went to Afganistan as a civilian volunteer to support the troops. She worked in the PX. Later she also went to Iraq. Her message is far more important to America than Cindy Sheehan's. But, so typically, the important messages are ignored in the media and the schools.
