The air is thick with excitement. It is almost like everyone senses that they are a part of something monumental, something great! America is making history with Election ’08, and people are proud to be a part of it. A black man is making waves across the nation, moving people to get out and mobilize and vote.
Children have learned more about the electoral process through this particular campaign, and have learned that voting is indeed important. It has been an opportunity for parents to teach their children to find out the facts for themselves and not rely on the media to give it to them.
I love these kids. They talked so intelligently about why they liked the candidates (yes, Obama AND McCain).
