Your View: Proud of students

JOPLIN, Mo. — Wow! I am so proud of the students I read about in two stories in Tuesday’s (Feb. 4) issue of the Globe. And I don’t even know any of them.

The story about the students at Stapleton Elementary who are raising funds to take to Moore, Okla., to “pay it forward” was just inspirational.

The story about the students at South Middle School who not only brought the story of Irena Sendler, the real-life Holocaust-era child rescuer, to light but who are also putting on a play about her life was beyond heartwarming.

What a pleasure to read these types of articles. All of the students, their teachers and their parents are to be applauded.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon said Tuesday that a tax cut approved by the Legislature could have a “cataclysmic” effect on state revenues to the tune of $4.8 billion. House Majority Leader John Diehl calls that “absurd.” Who do you believe?
