Today, we were able to visit with the students at Corpus Christi Catholic School in Mobile, Alabama.
This school was obviously very high-performing. The student— even the kindergarten group– asked really smart, thought-out questions and were genuinely interested in our presentation and story.
More importantly, I have a real concern for the direction of this country. Regardless of who wins the election this evening, there will still be gridlock in Washington. The only thing that will break this pattern is when we the voters become as non-partisan as what we demand in Washington.
What do I mean by this? We need to start voting by issue and person— not party.
The kids today were learning about America’s Election process and actually holding a mock election between President Obama and Governor Romney. They were downright excited to cast ballots and inquire of us whether or not or how we had voted.
The whole thing was so cool to see… and it strengthened my hope that this future generation can perhaps break the partisan gridlock, if us current adults fail to do so.
Here is a video of today’s visit:
Have a good night… I’ll be glued to the television.
