This event was put on mostly by the “cadets” from the “leadership Class,” that is nothing more than an indoctrination for the US military and our perpetual wars we fight in other people’s countries. The students even wear military style uniforms from time to time. It is unlikely that these students are ever told the inhabitants of the countries we invade are usually very poor compared to us. And what do they repeat over and over; “Freedom isn’t free,” or “these brave people protect your freedom.” Of course this implies we need people to fight all these wars to protect our freedoms and the freedoms of others, which is an outright lie. No one is protecting our freedom by the military and those who’ve taken part in the Occupy Movement know that only too well.
There were all kinds of poems, skits and even prayers. Yes prayers were read in a public school, which is not even constitutional.
The worst part is that is a middle school and these students are way too young to question what they are being told. This is nothing more than military indoctrination and a promotion of our militaristic and imperialistic foreign power. It also invoked “in God we trust” more than once, so it also promoted religion. The students are a captive audience and most have no way to hear the other side.
