honors nightSadly, we see more and more of this happening across the country. It seems that recognition for work well done now makes people who don’t succeed feel bad. Sadly, this is what comes from the liberalization of our culture and our system of education.

It makes Kurt Vonnegut seem like a prophet. If liberals have their way, the days of Harrison Bergeron are surely coming…

“THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. “

“All men are Not Created Equal and it is the duty of the Government to render them so”.

(Quotes from Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron.)


UPDATE: The Administration at Cole Middle School has reversed course and will hold the Honors Night Celebration!
