Thank You, President Obama

I am happy to report that Max's public elementary school aired the speech by President Obama this week without permission slips or any hoopla. I am also happy to report that when Max got home from school today and I asked him what President Obama talked about, his reply was "He said that sometimes school was hard for him, but he did his best," and I said "What kind of subversive crap is this guy trying to indoctrinate my kids with anyway?"

Actually, I almost cried.

Not only was I proud of him for listening and hearing the message, but I was proud of our President for teaching my son a very important lesson by showing that he, too, is human, but was able to become one of the most powerful people in the world through hard work and humility.

I just wish I could tell President Obama thank you in person. I would thank him for sharing not only his message, but a little bit of himself. And I would thank him for putting up with all the idiots. To me, just one Mom of a six year old, it was heroic.

And as a final thank you, I'm sharing the speech in it's entirety here, just in case you missed it.

And this for the people who made so many kids miss it.

For better and for worse, God bless America.

Under his administration I may do the paper work to be an official citizen of this country. I really like where things are going with him.
