Letter to the editor: Civics ed would build community

In reply to the Oct. 21 letter to the editor that ran under the headline “The BLM flag is a divider” — I would like to see civics and community service emphasized in schools. Repeating mantras or songs, as the letter suggests, does little to build/bond communities. Students engaging in the flying of the Black Lives Matter flag helps them understand/learn what community means — divide or bond.

At least they engaged.

Don’t forget, “We’re all in this together.”
