Land of the free?
Today I attended a school program. Visitors with no background checks had direct access to the students. A group of students presented a short play in which the President’s security guard carried a wooden gun. A student spoke about the importance of family…mother, father, and children. There were songs that spoke of Jesus as Lord. Students were served a meal that was not approved by the wife of any member of the executive branch. They prayed…out loud…invoking Christ.
The cameras of CNN will not show up here tomorrow. There will be no stories in any paper. There will be no investigative panel established to find out exactly who did what. The principal will not be fired, and the school board will not be revoked. Why? Because this program didn’t take place in the land of the free and the home of the brave. It took place…in Haiti.
