South Bronx High School

The venom level is increasing again, and frankly I don't think it's apt to get better soon. Sometimes I think it's important to remember what we're fighting for. I just watched this video. I haven't seen it linked here. It reinforced for me what's lost in all the rhetoric, particularly the whole Trinity United Church of Christ attacks.

Some say inspiring words don't mean anything; that pretty speeches don't mean anything; that hope is just a word. It's not true.

I don't know how to embed YouTube video in a diary here. I've looked around but I can't find it, so with apologies, I'll just offer this link.

Tyhank you Travis for this video. Absolutely amazing that Obama has inspired these kids. It just shows that Obama is correct when he says that it is not about him, it is about us and what we can do.

Thank you Barack for reminding us what we can do as a United Country.

Re: South Bronx High School

One of the best video's I've seen recently, showing the impact of national political discussion on young people.  

Kudo's to the teacher and to the kids.
