Letter: Bravo, Epsom

Bravo, Epsom

May I please offer a standing ovation to the Epsom Central School Board and Shawna Bateman for an outstanding example of representative democracy when one is so desperately needed.

Considering the context in which the Confederate battle flag is depicted in their school’s mural, their words and action would be a welcome response not only for Epsom but for our troubled nation as well.

History teacher Stephen Patterson has the ideal application of this decision. Yes, a perfect teaching moment for students – and all of us.
