How much do I wish that I had been in D.C. yesterday? Instead, the family went shopping to buy some b-day gifts for our baby boy! Lulu got to use some of her gift cards too! So, it was fun for all of us. DH wants to know when Bro can have a go-kart. Gulp!
Anyways, here is a youtube video of U2's Inauguration performance. It's worth it to watch it just for the opening and the pan of the crowd. Very cool!
Disclosure: In my effort to remain non-partisan, I am asking my co-workers who may be reading this blog to either stop reading this post at this time or to disregard the rest of this post.
So now I have another question. Is it appropriate for a public school to promote a certain political candidate? First, I need to disclose to my readers that I am an Obama supporter/fan and I am very excited to see him become President. Having said that, I have an issue with how Lulu's school has been handling the upcoming inauguration. Just the other day, Lulu was singing a rather hip/cool song about Barack Obama. It has a very cool and catchy tune. I asked her where she heard the song and she said that they play it on the loud speaker at school, after the morning announcements, every morning. Then she added, "Apparently, we are a Barack Obama loving school mom."
I like Obama. I want the man to be President. However, for some reason, I am very uncomfortable with a public school endorsing (for lack of a better word) this person for President. What about the rights/beliefs of those who are not Obama fans? Is this appropriate? What am I missing here? Why do I feel so icky about this, even though I support Obama in my home?
