Saying 'bless you' an act of kindness

Success - Article sent! close

I'm very concerned for this young girl in Tennessee who got sent to the principal's office at her school for just saying "bless you" when someone sneezed.

I feel that the young girl should be restored to her school and all classrooms immediately, without penalty. It's a very sad day when person cannot be concerned and compassionate to her fellow classmates.

I feel that the teacher should be suspended, not the young girl. I admire this young girl for being herself and really doing the right thing. Guess this teacher might have me in prison now, because I always say, "God bless you, may you live a good, happy, healthy life."

I think a kind blessing on someone is one of the very nicest things we can say, even to a stranger. I hope this newspaper has the courage to print this letter expressing my opinion.
