Today so many parents make their child an excuse for why they refuse to stand up in life, and they say they are keeping their lips zipped BECAUSE of their child. They are doing it BECAUSE of their child they say.
That's not okay.
A Kentucky soccer coach who refused to go masked and refused to enforce the mask didn't keep quiet because of his daughter. He stood up because of his daughter. He lost his coveted position as a result.
But because of his courage, he is also the father of the only soccer player in the county who plays without a mask.
The father who wrote me from Arizona didn't back down from his values because of his kids. No he doubled down. A decorated teacher, when the lockdowns began he didn't put on his mask and mask his two sons. No, he quit his job, pulled his two sons out of school and now homeschools them, a far more nurturing environment for all three of them.
