LETTER: Debate declare whether flag f & # 39; & # 39 level, Langley is educational or offensive
Writers & # 39; letters are falling for and against the hanging & # 39; flag & # 39; & # 39; rising sun & # 39; in class & # 39; Walnut Grove.
While I understand the stress caused by seeing the flag, I doubt the wisdom to remove.
ORIGINAL STORY: The controversy creates the Japanese flag in class Langley
Obviously, hopefully, students who objected to his presence, knowing its significance. But if we continue to hide certain aspects of & # 39; history because it can be uncomfortable for some, then how we should learn from the past?
HISTORY & # 39; UP: The flap of the flag off the sun in high school & # 39; Langley collapses counter petition
Within a short generation not knowing anything about the struggles or victories that our ancestors have done in & # 39; difficult circumstances and we will have the risk of repeating those same mistakes. It is our job to remember and nweġġgħu those who suffered, to celebrate their victories.
Life is not easy and by leaving pain, alienated ourselves from the filling of life and accept the mediocre f & # 39; attempt to protect our own personal happy bubbles.
Norm Johnson, Langley
