What we are teaching our children

No matter if you insult and sexually assault people , you can still be elected president of the US.

No matter if you intimidate others , discriminate ,and cause division , people can still vote for you and become president of the US.

No matter if you discriminate and act arrogant, and have a grandiose complex, you can still be president of the US.

No matter if you make fun of disabled people, you still can make history and become president of the US.

All you have to do is act as if money is the most important thing to be somebody and be well  respected.  

Just be arrogant, self centered, and grandiose and people will want you to be their leader.   

This country has shown to the rest of the world that what we value the most are the things we once discouraged in our homes, school, and churches . But this country has made a big turn . 

 Because this country we call “America” has chosen a bullying billionaire who exhibits all these characteristics, and has become the next president of the US.

Tuesday , 6 am:  My son and I are going on a field trip to the capital of the world.. We are in the bus right now. Sleep deprived. But excited.  Let’s see how this goes.  

7:30 am.  The bus breaks down.  Don’t know what’s wrong with it.  Seating down waiting for a replacement bus.  Still in Florida.  It’s getting hot inside a bus with 5o+ people. 

Wednesday 8:00. Had a good night sleep.  

 Heading now to Mount Vernon. It’s cold and cloudy. 

6:00 pm.  Visited zoo, White House,  Newseum, FDR  and MLK Memorials. Great experience .  Did not see the president.  Pizza for dinner with 50+ kids screaming.  Eating like a king.  My son is having a good time. 

Thursday 8 am.  Heading out to DC again. 

12 pm. A very emotional and exciting  

 experience at Vietnam and Korean War memorials.  Tears in my eyes as I contemplated on so many statues of soldiers .    Lincoln memorial was awesome. The light rain and cold did not take away our joy.  Our tour guide (Mrs Freeman) was great. My son really seemed to appreciate the memorials . 

 

Walking by the Capitol


 

6 pm. Visited the National Archives,  the  Capitol, and Arlington National Cemetery.  Did a lot of walking (and eating).   Went to bed as soon as kids quieted down . 

  Friday 8:45 am.  Left hotel for the last time.  Good breakfast.   Visited Smithsonian meuseum.  Walked and stood under the rain from one museum to another.   But it was worth it. 

4:30 pm. Heading out on bus to eat dinner. It’s been a long and tiresome day, but fun. 

Saturday 9 am .   Return to Florida, finally seeing some sunshine. It was a long trip back home.  My son slept most of the trip. Would do it all over again.
