A repost of my march 17, 2012 post, Get Busy—Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Or, What Did You Call It? Dedicated to Lassie
St Patrick is the most important Saint in Ireland and the most widely known “Saint” in the world. St Patrick’s Day is not an official holiday in America but is noted across the nation by the wearing of the green, sending greeting cards, attending parties and, for many, public drunkenness. It also has long been featured in American public schools along with Halloween and Valentine’s Day.
But, do these days support and promote diversity? No, they do not. It was only a matter of time until some mush-head “educator” would take bold corrective action. You would expect it to occur in California, but, no, Lisa Curtin, principal of the Soule Road School in Wilbraham, MA is the first known to relieve any potential discomfort pupils might feel who are not of Irish decent. Our heroine Lisa renamed the day the “more inclusive and diverse” “O’Green Day.” (I know, go ahead and laugh.) Lisa is on a roll. Just over a month ago, she replaced Valentine’s Day with the improved inclusive and diverse, “Caring and Kindness Day.” You are sure I’m making this up? No, no. this is true.
Just for you, Lassie—ILYTB!
