Despite celebrating ‘America Day’ every year at Jackson Hole High School in Wyoming, school administrators suddenly decided that they didn’t want to “offend” anybody and cancelled the celebration.
Some of the students didn’t take too kindly to the news and celebrated regardless, donning as many American-themed items as they could find to wear at their school that day.
Via The Blaze:
Every year, Jackson Hole High School has celebrated “America Day” around homecoming time — and it’s become quite the spectacle.
The tradition includes students wrapping American flags around their shoulders, wearing American flag attire and driving a diesel truck around the parking lot with the stars and stripes waving in the wind.
But this year turned out to be different for the students in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Activities Director Mike Hansen cancelled “America Day” this year to ensure no students were offended by the display of American pride.
“Many different students could have felt singled out…Maybe they moved here last week. Maybe they moved here last month,” he told the Jackson Hole News & Guide. “We’re trying to balance many different things here. We’re trying to be inclusive and safe, make everyone feel welcome.”
Many of the students defied the cancellation, sporting some very creative outfits.
Here is one such example below …
Other reports indicated that students drove “a diesel truck around the parking lot waving American flags after school.”
Recognizing what country we live in and benefit from through it’s freedom is somehow “offensive” to school administrators.
Bravo to the students who would not stand for that response.
Comment: Do you think an ‘America Day” is offensive? Do you agree with these students who protested that way of thinking?
