KIDS
Does everyone know what day it is? You guessed it its Tuesday and do you know what means? It means it must be your weekly dose of guilt from yours truly. What I have in store for my blog this week though is something a little different I think? Instead of doing a traditional blog, I'm going to tell of incident that happened yesterday to one of my best friends Nikema.

For those of you who do not know Nikema is a teacher and special needs teacher at that. She teaches fifth graders at Dunwoody Charter School. Anyway, she is also teaches an after school program and the after school programs that she works for she teaches second graders. I'm not sure how they got on the subject of TJ's campaign, but they did and her kids wanted to make TJ a book to help him keep up his campaign spirit. Its the one little girl's picture that was the most moving to me. Now keep in mind that this child seven years old. Her drawing for TJ was an American Flag, but the stripes on the Flag were all different colors instead of the standard red and white. Nikema asked her why her stripes were all different colors and Ashley the little girl all but seven said was when TJ is the President he should make a new Flag with the different colors so that everyone can fit under the American Flag so no one will feel left out. Isn't interesting that this little girl Ashley all but seven gets it? If she can get it why can't the Republicans get it? We are all under one big tent and each of us under that tent have a place. That is what someone else told me on Sunday. We are one big tent and everyone can fit under it.

Lookie there I can write a blog without guilt tripping anyone! Good for me!

It's moments like that when I understand why I teach! Children are so innocent until WE corrupt them. We have to start them out young instilling in them true democratic values. Another one of the requests for President TJ was for him to give money to schools so that ALL schools can have more stuff, because her old school didn't have as many computers and 'stuff' as this school and she wanted her friends to do well on the CRCT. At seven years old, Melissa is right, they get it!!

I am unsure whether to laugh or cry.
