I have never written to an editor for any newspaper. I would like you to let my voice as a parent be heard in and around Rowan University.
The recent November 2016 emails sent to the adult college students shows us what is causing the pussification of America. We, as parents, or at least some of us, teach our children growing up that there are winners and losers in life. The lessons learned while growing up carves our children’s mindset on how to react and take a win, loss or displeasure in a situation and move on.
In 1944, our 18-year-olds stormed Normandy Beach for our freedom and many lost their lives. We won and that is why we have our freedom we all enjoy today. What is being done to our 18-year-olds and above now teaches them to look to others for comfort and we as a nation will succumb to losing our freedom, our strong business ethics and our rank in the world.
The Ombudsman, or, to be politically correct for Rowan, ombudsperson Catherine Parrish and Rowan University need to rethink their policy of making our children think there will be a safe place in the real world when they graduate. The business world does not have safe rooms or company medals at the place they will be working. In 10 years we will see the degrading business world and think back, “Oh we shouldn’t have done that.”
