Reaction to president’s speech plans is truly sad

I don’t currently have a student at South Point High School, so some may wonder why I am interested in what goes on there.

My answer is this: My husband and I are true Pointers.

We both graduated from South Point High School and, after living away from here for several years, moved back to South Point 25 years ago to raise our children here.

I am so offended by the fact that our schools are not participating in President Barack Obama’s speech to school children. This is not a political decision … this is a patriotic one.
