Dear lunatic fringe. I don’t care who you voted for. Barack Obama is the President of the United States. This is not a political rant. This is a frantic appeal to the people who are complaining because the President of the United States is going to be talking to students via a TV speech.
When I was in second grade, everyone in the school gathered in the cafeteria to watch the space shuttle blast off. Before the launch, President Reagan spoke. I don’t remember parents keeping kids out of school for that.
I thought we teach children to respect the democratic process, to respect the fact that we as a people elect our representatives and most of all respect THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
