  • To The Principal:
    This is a standing ovation for Kathleen Lyday. I would hope to God that she did NOT lose her job over the letter she wrote. She was absolutely correct and right on. If anything, she is an awesome example for all children. Ms. Lyday stood up for what was right. She deserves recognition for this. I hope, as the school principal, you had the courage to stand behind her.

  • Firing a teacher over a free speech issue would set a very bad example for children all over the United States.

  • I do not have children who went to your school. I do not even live in your state. But I wish I did. My comment concerns Ms. Kathleen Lyday. I am glad someone besides me has finally spoken the TRUTH about our president and his staff of crooked cronies. I have always told my children that we must show respect to the president of our own country even if we disagree with him. This president has gone too far! I think Ms. Lyday should be voted "Teacher of the Year"!!

  • I feel Ms. Lyday was unjustifiably released. Our right to free speech was exercized, especdially in a public school. looks like legal action is appropriate .
    Best wishes Ms. Kathy.........Jim

  • If Ms. Lyday is actually was an instructor at your school and was dismissed for her letter to the President, then shame on your school. Everything she said was right! I say she should be commended.

  • As far as I can see the letter Ms. LyDay has written is outstanding! I am sick of the direction our country is going. We used to be a strong, independent, and open minded country. Now we have a leader forcing us into his Muslim ideas and government ran country. What happened to a democracy ran by the people for the people. That is soon turning to a capitalism and/ or communistic country. Our government is lining their pockets and feeding us to the wolves. Obvious with the shooting of our serviceman at Fort Bliss by a terrorist. Wake up America! I wished personal politics would stay out of the classroom; but I guess it is alright for the liberals to state their views and I as an Independent is to keep my mouth shut! NO MORE! I am now part of the The Patriot Freedom Alliance organization to take back our country that belongs to the people NOT the government! Hats off to you Ms. LyDay I commend you! Shauna Eash Hutchinson Kansas, USA and proud of it!

  • reports that Ms. Lyday was not the author of this letter. She is a teacher that has an opinion and forwarded an email that she agreed with. She should not be penalized for having a personal life and personal opinion. Too many people are being taught to never speak up if it is not in agreement with 'everyone else'. That is why this country is in the position it is now. The reaction to this letter could be a lesson in itself to a creative teacher! How many people just judged this teacher without finding out if she even wrote the letter? How many people don't believe that people are allowed to have an opinion different than theirs? How many people recognized that we have a great country that allows people to write their opinion without fear of being fired or sent to prison! Even if the opinion does or doesn't match their own!
    If we can't write our opinion without fear then we can never direct change in our country. That is what has made our country different and special. Let’s keep it that way for our children!

  • I find Ms. Lyday's letter a breath of fresh air. More people need to speak out concerning what they believe and how they really feel about our country and its government. To all the people that are saying she should not be teaching or should be fired - maybe you need to go back to school - she never once mentioned in her letter that she taught her students any of what she wrote. I am sure, that she, as a teacher, can separate her personal beliefs from her lessons that are taught to students. She is surely a Professional ! Should we fire all teachers who are not Christian because we don't want them to spread their beliefs? How about Gay teachers? What if the teacher believes in abortions? We, as Americans, should be able to express our personal beliefs and express them without fear of retaliation. I am a teacher and I wish I had the courage to express what I believe but I am too fearful of "stupid" people that will complain and call for my head on a platter.

  • Ms. Lyday's letter to President Obama was wonderfully written. Too bad she will probably never receive a reply. Ms Lyday I would be delighted to have you teach my son instead of many of the lemmings that spout liberal comments that have not been thoroughly considered or researched and with out realizing the consequences of their speak. I am raising my son to think for himself and to come to his own conclusions by looking at all sides of a situation. You have done your research. Your principal and administration should be proud to have such a passionate teacher on their team.
