Since it's shout out Sunday - A shout out to loved ones who take care of us in our times of need

Two weeks ago, I took a nasty spill on our wet basement floor, nothing broken, but terrible pain and bruising to the bone. My husband has not only worked his hours away from home, but taken care of my household duties, PLUS, my birthday was the day after my fall, and he baked me a beautiful cake and made supper.

So now at 50 years of old age, I have my first tooth ache. It's a humdinger and being the holiday weekend, Monday morning can't come soon enough. So again still, my hubby is taking care of me, the house and kitties... I may hurt like crazy, but I'm sure thankful for my man.

Dear School District 304,

As a courtesy Iím letting you know Iíve engaged the American Center for Justice and Law (ACLJ) as well as multiple conservative and verteran groups. Iím also contacting IL state legislators.

I WILL NOT stand for my children standing in front of the flag, hand on heart, reciting a corrupted Pledge of Allegiance that leaves out ďlibertyĒ and has students stating they will obey all rules and commands of teachers. I witnessed this first hand today and am ashamed. You are teaching fascism plain and simple. My children will not grow up as blind followers who donít think for themselves.

I can think of no reason for having a separate pledge for kindergarteners and first graders then indoctrination of the young. Not going to happen on my watch. Iíve shed blood for this Country and will do so again if necessary.

My mother spent 12 years in a prison camp. Iím NOT ALLOWING you to introduce a Nazi way of life into the USA.

Kind Regards,

Colin M. McGroarty MBA, MCSE
