Daniel Murphy HS Should NOT Close
We all are part of the Daniel community in some way. The Archdiocese has made some terrible mistakes in the past on how they handled the Priest child abuse scandal. The sad part is that it appears they are continuing with the same mistake, hurting todays and future children to cover mistakes of the past. I personally talked to Daniel Murphy’s School Principle, and she stated that she repeatedly tried to reiterate to the Archdiocese that Daniel Murphy HS is financially solvent and has been running in the Black for many years – my son was on a waiting list to attend as a freshman in 2004.
I often tell my kids, that you should not just listen to people’s words; but also, look more attentively at their actions.
The Cardinal, repeatedly stated how protecting the children from harm was one of his top priorities; but his action differs. How many fund raisers did the cardinal attend to gather funding for the newly built Cathedral? Now compare that to the effort to Cardinal has put into trying to keep Daniel Murphy from closing. What I find shocking is that I do not recall hearing any attempts from the Archdiocese looking for solutions to keep Daniel Murphy High School open.
If we all choose to stand together on this issue, we can prevent a terrible injustice from occurring.
