Teaching the next generation
Childhood and politics.
Not really sure they go together, but teaching our children the political process and making them aware of how America selects the folks who ultimately shape the country's future is probably a good idea.
When I was a child, I remember asking my mother a lot of questions "why."
Why is there war, crime, poverty, sadness...things that, to a child, seem to have easy answers:
Be kind; don't take things that don't belong to you; respect others; share if you have extra.
Too bad solving all the world's ills isn't that easy.
Or is it?
While covering a recent Presidential campaign stop in Tampa, I came across Breanna Duhart, 8, reading "Barack Obama, Our President" as she waited in line with her family to see President Obama at the Hillsborough Community College in Tampa.
Maybe when Breanna grows up, she'll have some ideas.
