Letter to the Editor: Close schools for Veterans Day

Sunday, November 18, 2007

To the editor:I am happy about Veterans Day and support it to the fullest. But a lot of states had no school on Veterans Day. I do not like the idea that Cape Girardeau children had school on Veterans Day. Banks and post offices were closed. Having school is not fair. I have two daughters, one in Central Junior High School and the one is in Central Middle School. They asked me, "Mom, why do we have school and the other states don't?" I think it should be a holiday for everyone.
