It is the hardest event to watch….when one’s beloved has reached an age that society deems unfit to work. To watch a vibrant active man who loved his profession and excelled beyond his colleagues abilities being kicked out for racial prejudice is heart breaking. As a professor he was the most caring of teachers and his passion for his subject infused his students with the desire to learn.
Now he is out to pasture, a forced pasture, by those who helped put Trump in office and those who reelected and doted on Bush. To side line a person because of his origins is cruel and short sighted; however, we now see how blind these people are.
The education system, once a grand testament to our forefathers, now breeds consumers, insipid leaners, and truly ignorant people. Our once proud yeoman nation is a hovel ruled by ultra elites. A citizen is either a serf or an elite.
The Elites mock the learned ones and belittles their knowledge as superfluous. When has any culture thought knowledge was not a good thing? When has a society even begrudged teachers, mocked teachers? Yet this country has been mocking teachers for generations. Television is the mirror of society however it also is the creator of society. We have become the sitcom citizenry. Inept dad, sexy mother, obnoxious rude children, the brunt of most jokes are the educational system.
Where has this taken our once great nation? We are morally bankrupt, spendthrifts, hate filled people who scream obscenities at strangers in public.
So this is where I am with a vital man who is forced to do nothing when his dream was to teach as long as he lived. Thank-you to all you phony people who think you are Christians, who think you are patriots, you are neither. This country is tanking because of your hatred and your willful ignorance. Rest in Peace My country Tis of Thee!
