A Big Day,...
A big day for the country yesterday. In our school we had televisions in several locations. I happen to have lunch duty in the cafeteria at the time of President Obama taking the Oath of Office. Here are students in grades 4-6 watching intently as that happened.
The kids were quiet for most of it, fascinated. However, during the speech they clapped and cheered for various points.
This age student only knows about segregation and persecution what they read in books. Some of us remember seeing it on the nightly news. Congratulations U.S. of A.!
