I am a veteran and retired member of the U.S. Air Force. I am very concerned about the closing of our schools.
This is probably the most disastrous occurrence in our nation’s 235 years of existence.
The Civil War, WWI, WWII, and the wars in Korea and Vietnam all pale in comparison.
We are placing our country in a secondary status with the rest of the world.
Children cannot learn over Zoom video sessions with their teachers. It takes direct, in-person sessions for any learning to occur.
For example, children cannot express themselves to their teacher when all of their peers are listening. They don’t want to appear dumb to their friends.
If teachers have to risk COVID-19, then that is the risk they must take for the good of our nation.
