Obama Inauguration Family Fund Raising Party. Include the Kids!!

The Inauguration of President Obama this Tuesday is a party to take your kids to. The youth vote made a big difference in this past election, trumping race, according to The Wall Street Journal's review of the book by Gwen Ifill, The Break Through - Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.

Our daughter is a high school freshman. In 4 short years she'll be eligible to vote in the 2012 Presidential Election. If you are connected to any young people, I encourage you to include them in this inauguration. Whatever their politics may be (or become), expose them to the political process now so that they become conscious of their ability to effect the change they want to see.

In my town, Bend, Oregon, there is a wonderful Inauguration Party that is also a fund raiser for the Boys and Girls Club. Bring the family, we'd love to see you there!!
