State of the Union
Tuesday night, we watched the State of the Union Address. Drew has been learning about the presidents and so it fit perfectly into his curriculum. He loved it. After it was over, we laughed about how interested he was in all the pomp and circumstance. But, for us, we saw the speech differently with our 6 year old watching. The whole speech was about the profound potential of Americans and how this potential needs to be maximized for the sake of our future. More specifically, we know that the ideas, policies, and principles being discussed are the groundwork for the society in which our 6 year old will live. In some ways it was encouraging and exciting, in many ways it was depressing and scary. And, the ultimate reality is that no matter how we feel as we consider the future of our country, it doesnt change our simple responsibility to "Trust and Obey."
