Family traditions should not be broken
Enochville Elementary is a very unique school. It has buildings from different eras in time. Therefore, it shows different styles, longevity, strength, compassion, dedication and growth.
The buildings at Enochville Elementary are very well preserved and maintained. There has been a lot of upgrades and hard work put into the school. It gives children that go there a chance to see that their school is from different eras and has a history that shows Enochville is strong community that has grown together over the years. It has cared enough to keep the school in the prestigious condition that it is currently in.
That shows children of the community that this is a strong school that has grown over the years, served many children in the past and has plans to serve many children of the future.
Enochville Elementary has and always has had a very strong, caring staff who only want and strive for the very best for every student. It means a lot to children who are eager to go to school, and especially those who are not so eager, to know that their big brother, sister, mother, father, or grandparents went to the school they are going to attend. It is family tradition, and should not be allowed to be broken. New and bigger is not always better.

World doesn’t revolve around transgender people
North Carolina today is suffering financially from much-undeserved criticism from progressives over issues with the transgender people who believe they are suffering discrimination. Transgenders are men or women who think they were born with the wrong equipment for a happy life.
So, men dress up in women’s clothes and take on feminist characteristics and women take on the airs of men.
This self induced misery that they inflicted upon themselves cannot be satisfactorily resolved surgically but it can be treated mentally. They must first understand the world does not revolve around them and their obsession.
Several weeks ago, a man called into a radio talk show and expressed the feeling that he was a black man in a white man’s body. The host of the show was very kind to him but there is no solution except with mental treatment for his delusion.
Delusional people want everyone else to suffer along with them. They envy normal people and demand anyone not suffering with their delusion must accept them and their delusion. Envy can be one of the most destructive emotions a person may harbor. They can never be happy and do not want to be because they envy normal people and this has become an obsession in their sub conscious.
Better the whole world suffer than for me to suffer alone.
This progressive, politically correct obsession over one’s identity cannot be fixed legally, socially or surgically. The real problem is that most of us don’t care and for that we will suffer the “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” that progressives intend throwing our way. If you can’t find a bathroom to suit your taste, go natural, find a bush or a tree.
