Readers Write: Games on holidays show disrespect


Has anyone noticed over the past 30 or 40 years that the people who make the after school sports schedule always have games on Memorial Day and Mother’s Day?

The government gives a day off (in this area 5:27 a.m. to noon) to honor our war dead. The government knows, if not for these 1 million war dead, there would be no U.S.A.

It is an unwritten contract between U.S. government and we citizens.

But the local sport  teams violate this trust and steer our sport minded children away from this trust and schedule games on Memorial Day and Mother’s Day, instead of teaching our children  to be  trustworthy citizens they teach to be just like them.

A child’s game is more important than being a loyal useful trustworthy citizen.
