I have no idea what happens now. I guess we'll just keep enjoying our summer vacation while I explore all other options. It just got to the point with her school where I couldn't take it anymore. I found that I was rationalizing all of my concerns with the fact that she was doing so well with her foreign languages. Well, you know what? Foreign language isn't everything. Although it is super important to me. *sigh*
Anywhoo, in other news, have you seen this story in the Vancouver Sun?
I mean, can you believe these people? I really would like to know, who are the people who think and speak like this because I don't know anyone who does and I certainly wouldn't stand by while someone did it in my presence.
"A typical street whore." "A bunch of ghetto thugs." "Ghetto street trash." "Wonder when she will get her first abortion."
These are a small selection of some of the racially-charged comments posted to the conservative 'Free Republic' blog Thursday, aimed at U.S. President Barack Obama's 11-year-old daughter Malia after she was photographed wearing a t-shirt with a peace sign on the front.
The thread was accompanied by a photo of Michelle Obama speaking to Malia that featured the caption, "To entertain her daughter, Michelle Obama loves to make monkey sounds."
Just sick people, really. She is a child!!!
*deep breath* Honestly, between Michael Jackson and this news about Malia Obama and the Gosselin drama, I have come to a conclusion. The last thing that I want for myself or my children is fame. It is simply not worth it. Honestly, I wouldn't run for office for all the tea in China. Just so that my entire life can be dragged across the tabloids for all to trash? Just so that every item of clothing, every comment, every morsel of food that crosses my lips can be scrutinized? No thank you. And I don't know how we expect to get quality people to serve when they see the kind of treatment that they get.
