I was at my granddaughter's fifth grade graduation. She received the Presidential Excellence Award. We were thrilled — the criteria is fairly high to get the award.

As we talked about it in the car, going home — her comment was a very sneering remark — it is from Trump ! I said, "Whoa! No. 1, I am a Trump supporter, No. 2, it was started in 1983 and given by all presidents and No. 3, He is your president and the President of the United States! It is an honor to receive the award."

This 11-year-old basically knows nothing about the government — but she hates Trump. Gee, who gets that credit? Her teachers!

If teachers are going to teach politics, then teach and do not interject your personal opinions to the children!

Her parents and I are not Democrats! So, a few short years from now, when she can vote, her little mind is already full of hatred!

Hopefully, she can appreciate that Presidential Award pin in the future!
