This morning for breakfast I made some oatmeal, wheat toast, orange juice, and hot coffee. Then I sat down at the kitchen table and opened the morning news. Paul Carpenter’s column, Honors Student is Dishonored by Corrupt Rule in Bethlehem first made my stomach churn. Then I got mad.

Breakfast in the Valley was never intended to be political. Enjoying breakfast as I do, I meant it as a way to share that enjoyment with others. But as much as I love savoring breakfast with loved ones, I also hate injustice. Injustice due to raw greed and corruption is even worse. That’s what seems to have happened here. It’s why I’m speaking up.

I’ve always supported community service. It’s a good thing – to give back. But not when it becomes mandatory for earning a high school diploma. Graduation from high school is about academics, not about providing free labor for some school administrator’s brother-in-law.

A thought

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?" ........... "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?" ...... "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. ... Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.” ...... ― A.A. Milne
