I don't think it's too much to ask of myself to keep on the high of this momentous, history-making occasion. Oh, this 44th President of ours is making me very, very happy.
Our usual Friday assembly was a special MLK, Jr. celebration today where our first graders, along with the 2nd and 3rd graders, sang a beautiful, upbeat song that went a little like this:
What can one little person do
what can one little me and you do
to help the world?
Obama's first first act as president, a proclamation declaring a national day of renewal and reconciliation and calling on Americans to serve one another.
Momentous occasion, indeed!
