Special one...

The most fun thing happened during school lunch the other day.
As I was walking through the cafeteria, a third grade student was calling my name,
"Ms. L! Ms. L!"
I approached his table and briefly overheard the table of third graders talking politics, confidently repeating phrases they'd heard their parents say.
They asked with enthusiasm, "Who do you want to be president?"
I bent down to their level and paused, to build suspense, then eagerly I replied, "President Barack Obama!"
The table of nine-year olds erupted in a chorus of "Yehs" and high 5s.
It was so invigorating witnessing their excitement, and it made me, again, hopeful for change.
