Lots going on. Cars breaking down, appointments, getting ready for moves... Lots of transition.
Noticed that the President talked with kids about their responsibility to the country. I didn't catch anything where he said anything about the country's responsibility to our children.
Sounds remenicent of JFK's speach in which he told people to "ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country".
While I am a big beleiver in public service and giving of ourselves, I also beleive that the "personal responsiblitiy, pull your selves up by the boot straps" is a cop-out perpetrated by the very administration we elect to put in office. They use this kind of guilt trip so as too not take responsibility for what they are elected to do-Take Care of the Needs of the People in an equitable, responsible, democratic manner.
