Ask yourself, are we a great group of parents? When I was growing up in a similar community,(Palo Alto, CA)parents and neighbors got along very well. Although some were Democrat and some republican, there was never this sense of division and anger. It was really hard to tell what political beliefs people had, because for the most part, unity and community came first. These days, especially pre and post election, folks seem to be very opinionated, one sided, and hostile towards one another, teachers, parents and even business people. Deep inside, we all wan't the same thing, to be happy and healthy, to contribute to society, and to have some fun. It is so sad to see even kids as young as 1st grade get into arguments over politics. How we act and treat one another is more important than what political party we belong to, and or our religious views. Our children see how we act, there hear what we say and they model their behavior and belief system after us.
