Courage

Graphic1The Obama administration’s “guidance” on transgender bathroom policy in schools continues to be felt … even in Wheaton. Yesterday was the first day of school for my son Evan, who is a sophomore at Wheaton Warrenville South High School.

In many classes the teachers asked students to fill out self-surveys, and this was the case in Evan’s “health” class. One of the questions asked Evan for his “preferred pronoun.” (This is one of the items covered in the transgender “guidance.”)

Evan is a pretty quiet guy. But instead of going along with this reality-twisting political correctness, entirely on his own he stuck his neck out and made a statement. His answer:

“Really?”

I’m proud of Evan, who reminds me of the little boy who had the courage to speak the truth, that the emperor has no clothes. May more and more of us, for the good of our neighbors, display the same courage in the days ahead.
