This blog is not to start or fire up a firestorm-just to ask that my friends join me in using a clear head about these issues. I have made a personal decision: from now on if I don't read the issue-I don't comment on it. I admit in the past I have been too quick to react sometimes and that does get your foot in your mouth that requires major surgery to remove! Last Friday, I received a letter from the school telling us that they would not air the Presidential speech today for our children at school-I talked to my husband about it and we both reacted as if the country is really going a bit crazy. I was happy to see the script for that speech from the NPR website, to the Whitehouse site: see below. (I Googled to find it.)
This doesn't seem political:
Our daughter (almost ten now) has respect for the office of the President and told me that it shouldn't be a political issue if it comes from that office. He is supposed to be the President of all of the people.
Mouths of Babes! After reading the speech myself I have to agree-This is the speech that I would hope for from a President of any party to the children of this nation! Skip the politics and judge the speech-can you really fault the subject or the comments? I have not been a strongly political person in the past (I do vote with each opportunity to do so) but, I do have views that might surprise you after reading this post.
I can hear the "yes buts", but again if you don't read the speech-please don't bother to comment on this blog! Now I have to go, there is this 1000+page health care book I need to read next! Ha, have you?
