The Library's Moral Exhibitionism

Ah, the cutting-edge, woke library.

In case you are unaware, the Petoskey District Library Board of Trustees' include a "land acknowledgement" (highlighted in blue) on their meeting agenda.

We prefer our public meetings to begin with an old-fashioned Pledge of Allegiance, because, in part, we are fans of that unifying "one nation under God" section. And we don't view ourselves as either colonizers or squatters (as do the trustees, apparently), but as responsible Americans who are subsidizing the library's questionable agenda whether we like it or not. In fact, we even think we own a piece of the land, since the library belongs to "we, the people."

Please let the library's director and trustees (respectfully) know what you think of the 'acknowledgement.'
