WARRIOR

A second grader in Delaware wrote a very moving oral report:

So Will I

My grandfather remembers when he was in the Navy. He fought in World War Two. When I play GI Joes with him he would always take the gun he used when he was in the war. He would always tell me about the gun he use to use. When I grow and go to war I want to have the same gun and do the same things too.

I have wanted to be a warrior since I was four. The reason why I want to be a warrior is so I can help others and be remembered. My dad doesnÂ’t want me to be a warrior, but I am still going to be one. If I was alive when they had the Vietnam War I would have been in it.

My grandfather was a warrior and so will I.
The End

And then he got yelled at by his teacher.

2 If my son was treated that way, I would not stop at the principal to reach the teacher, I would go to the School Superintendent and then I would go to the ACLU and my Congressman and my Senator. Here is this little guy, proud of his grandfather, as he should be, and some leftie preacher/teacher treats him this way. It makes me totally livid.

3 Ok ladies and gents I live less than an hour from Wilmington, I used to work in Wilmington, so I still read the Wilmington News Journal from time to time. I have read zilch about this, and I know how to search a site. I kinda have my doubts, but I will contact some friends in the education field to see if they have heard of this.

4 The story doesn't hold up. First of all, it is a "she said that she said that he said that she said" story. Look at this: Teacher->child->mother->anonymous source. ANYTHING could come out of that. Also, if it happened in May why was the mother only trying to get a hold of the teacher two months later over the summer break? Sounds like just another excuse for people to go ape in their "nazi liberal overpaid teachers" routine.
