President Obama's speech!
OK~This Mom really doesn't like to get into Politics, but I cannot resist this! I think it is awesome that our President is going to address our school kids to encourage them to do well in school. Now, I may not agree with everything he does propose, but this is one thing I think is great! It's too bad that more people can't take an interest in our youth of today. For instance, a few years ago President George W Bush was in our town ( a community of 29,000 people)- an opportunity of a lifetime to see the President of the United States. Many fellow Democrats in our community complained that people were pulling their kids out of school to see him. Well, HELLLOOO- How many times would a child have an opportunity to see the President of the United States in person? I see both sides (Republican and Democrat) complaining about something good going on.....I just wish people could respect the other party~ This comes from a Mom who tends to lean toward the Conservative side! After all, it's all in a Mom's Day, Right?
