Which definition did a school cause community ‘angst’ about the flag of our nation?
a feeling of deep anxiety or dread, typically an unfocused one about the human condition or the state of the world in general.
a feeling of persistent worry about something trivial.
“my hair causes me angst”
I posted three previous posts about the wisdom or folly about the controversy of kneeling during the Flag and National Anthem. In today’s news, the Chicago Tribune reported that York High School principal wrote a letter of apology for creating “community angst” about the issue of her approving the recreation of the 1989 art exhibit display of the flag which caused the Supreme Court to rule that desecrating the flag was art and protected by the First Amendment Rights of free speech.
Which above definition of ‘angst’ should apply to this issue?
Foolish children bring grief to their father and bitterness to the one who gave them birth. (Proverb 17:25 NLT)
What is My Point?
While I can understand the supporters of the teachers at York reasons were to teach civics, I believe it would have been wise to also include the other side of the issue. That being the reason for the Rules of how to address the flag.
In My Opinion
The real angst of parents is that schools are being influenced more by politics of only one side of political issues, and not enough about Rules, Rights, and Wisdom for themselves, their community, and their Nation.
Was it wise or foolish for the High School to display only one side of the issue?
Are you having angst about what schools are teaching your children?
Is kneeling at Flag Ceremony something we should all worry about or a trivial matter?
