“Girls are like apples…the best ones are at the top of the trees. The boys don’t want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground that aren’t as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think there is something wrong with them, when, in reality, they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who’s brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree…”
i’ve never felt so proud to be an american and an ohioan… we spent the evening with several friends and lots of kids… it was awesome to see how engaged the kids were with the election… from volunteering at Obama campaign headquarters, to attending rallies, and finally seeing history being made this evening… they were able to witness democracy in action and be inspired by a man who overcame impossible odds to become our next president… see, kids, you don’t have to be a rich, white man to become president of the united states… you have to work hard, have vision and intelligence, and stay true to your convictions… yes we can!
