Presidential Motorcade

I bet you have figured out that Bear forms his own opinions, strong ones at that. During the election, Bear wanted McCain to win. When Obama was elected, Bear appreciated the fact that history was being made. He watched the inauguration in class with attention. He wanted to support Obama as our president. So much so that he bought a book about him. After all, how can he fully support him if he knows nothing about him? On that same token, Bear also feels that Obama being the 1st African American president is very important. But, now that's it's been acknowledged, he should just be a man who is our 44th president. Isn't that what being treated equally is all about? Who is this kid who thinks so deeply?

In Washington DC,the kids, including Bear, were excited to have the Presidential motorcade pass right before their eyes.

They were waving and chanting.
This police officer made sure to ask the sponser to have the kids Stand.Still. Do.Not.Move. Not an inch.
And, if you look really closely, you can see the outline of a man in the back seat.

President Obama? No one knows for sure. But there are ten 5th graders who believe he is. Who are we to say otherwise?

That's so cool that he got a book to learn more about him. He's a smart cookie and I'm glad he's mature enough to enjoy the trip.
I too think that's the President in that car!

I completely ♥ Bear... he is the deepest and most interesting kid for his age I have ever 'known'. Many adults could learn a LOT from your son.
