This letter is in regard to the St. Maries SD41 board meeting that I attended on Oct. 7. My husband & I have three children that have been in the St. Maries School District for 12 years - our oldest just having graduated this year, & our two youngest in 6th & 9th grade.

I was confused & frustrated when, at the board meeting, we were told right off that we parents were not allowed to utter a word. Do we not PAY these people to work for US (excluding board members)! Why do we have no say whatsoever in the lives & activities of our children.

As a Christian Patriot I was also appalled when they stood for the Pledge of Allegiance to our great flag & then gave us no freedom to express ourselves which is what our very First Amendment is all about.

The very first lines of the Nuremberg Code says the following: “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment. The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.”

I believe that forcing mask mandates, which was the subject of the school board meeting, falls perfectly into this. The mask has been so politicized that it prevents rational consideration of the evidence. Why are we being forced on these points & people even losing jobs over them when the illegals coming across our border by the tens of thousands are given a choice?

That is not freedom for We The People! This virus has a 99.99% recovery rate with our children being the highest of that percent - there is no reason they should have “diapers” covering their beautiful faces.

Last year we complied for a bit with the mask mandate until very quickly it was giving our kids symptoms they have not had otherwise such as severe headaches, bloody noses & upset stomachs when they wore the masks. Not to mention what it does for the health of their mental faculties. As we all know, if the brain is oxygen deprived, we lose cells.

Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson MD, PhD, one of Europe’s leading neurologists has stated “The rebreathing of our exhaled air will, without a doubt, create oxygen deficiency and a flooding of carbon dioxide. We know that the human brain is very sensitive to oxygen deprivation.”

There are neurons in the hippocampus that cannot survive more than three minutes without an adequate supply of oxygen. Considering that our teachers probably want our children to have bright clear minds for learning, masks are not helping this cause.

It has been brought to my attention that a “mask mandate” is NOT LAW & cannot be actually forced on us. But we have chosen to pull our remaining two children out of the public school system & not make them go through the garbage they are being forced into. The masks are now, but what is next? If We The People do not start taking a stand against the unpatriotic evil that is being forced upon us, we very soon will not have a country left to be proud of.

Masks, vaccines etc. should be a choice of the person, not forced by the government in whatever capacity or branch that is. Our Founding Fathers left us a great legacy & we will do our best to follow their footsteps, being willing to give all for what is good & right.


I leave you with this from a wonderful nurse who said it best~ “Why do the PROTECTED need to be PROTECTED from the UNPROTECTED by forcing the UNPROTECTED to use the PROTECTION that didn’t PROTECT the PROTECTED in the first place!!??”

Vaccine requirements in schools are far from being a new concept. In fact, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, every state in the United States has a vaccine mandate in place for students, and has for many years. All US states require vaccines of some kind, whether for MMR, chickenpox, HPV or other diseases. (Religious and medical exemptions are in place for these as well.) Taking a look at how this country has handled vaccinations in schools in the past, it's a fair assessment to assume that the COVID-19 vaccination could eventually be a requirement in most schools.
