State of the Union for kids

February 13, 2013  |  Share

Okay, I don’t know that many kids were still up at the end of the President’s State of the Union last night but I will say the part it would have been wonderful for them to hear was at the very end. When the President talked about 102 year old woman who waited six hours to vote or the Wisconsin police officer who lay bleeding from 12 gunshot wounds but directed help away from him to protect the Sikh Americans still worshipping inside the mosque where a gunman opened fire. When asked how he could be so brave, the officer responded, we’re just like that. It was such a testament to the strength of an individual and the way we are all tested under fire. A wonderful moment for the next generation to hear.
