I will never forget...and I may never forgive (VIDEO)
November 3, 2022
There's so much to unpack from this video, where do I begin?
Lately there's a trend in the college academia world plus major media - and, how can I forget - the nation's largest teachers union, to call for "amnesty" from what those powerful players in American society did across 2020, 2021 and 2022 to inflict harm and suffering on citizens throughout the pandemic. They are quietly admitting they were wrong and now want us to forgive them.
Well - as the video says - SORRY, we are not going to forget what you did. We also may never forgive you. What you did was beyond the pale. There is far too much evidence that what you did and what you said was inhumane, vile and wrong. Nope, forgiveness isn't even in my wheelhouse right now. It may never come.
Example: a college professor is currently asking us to forgive her for what she advocated for in 2020 and 2021. This professor tweeted in November 2020 that the United States needed a total and complete lockdown of public schools. She went on and on and on about it. She was one of many insane players out there who carried significant influence who were demanding that Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa schools among others tell all of our children that they had to stay home in late November and early December of 2020. It would have been absolutely devastating to our youngest child, who was working very hard to overcome the learning loss she suffered by losing the last two-and-a-half months of her kindergarten in the spring of 2020. Fortunately, our school board provided the necessary leadership to keep our elementary school fully open for students in third grade and younger. Our preschool remained open that entire time. Hallelujah for that! Students in grades 4 to 12 were asked to utilize distance learning for a three-week period in December, but students in those grades were still allowed to utilize in-person education services where it was deemed necessary. B-B-E staff bent over backwards to ensure access to in-person school services for special education students. This was truly remarkable.
To those who called for policies and actions that would have severely harmed the children of our community (and others), I said this many times in 2020 = we will never forgive, and we will never forget.
