To the Editor:
For the second year in a row, the Sanborn School Marching Band has chosen not to participate in the town(s) Memorial Day Parade, due to some students and parents not willing to commit to Memorial Day.
"Parents are pushing back because they want that family time." Shame on these parents for failing their children with basic life values about commitment, respect, and honor. Being part of any organization requires dedication and sacrifice, as in life, personally and professionally.
Ask any veteran or servicemen about sacrifice, many of who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. They deserve our full respect and honor, if not for a lifetime, at least a few hours.
