Since I discovered last week that the majority of my kids do not know who Kid President is, I am showing several videos a day up until the election. I love his positive messages and the kids LOVE his dancing, goofy antics and don't forget, the raspberry noises he makes (we had to talk about when that is appropriate). I am going to spend part of my evening making a new Youtube list for the days leading up to the election.
I am more familiar with his older videos so I spent some time viewing the new ones. I came across the Totally Awesome Historic Sleepover held in the National Archives. Listening to the back story while KP met the National Archives archivist, David Ferriero, was intriguing. Apparently, he wrote to the President when he was a kid and when he took over the Archives, someone on staff found his original letter and had it framed for his office. It seems, if you write a letter to the President, it remains in the Archives. Happy to say that I have a letter there!!!
I was intrigued by Kid President's comments on wanting to make history. He has some ideas on how he can make history, Being the first man on the moon is out, electricity is out, as is writing the movie Space Jam or the musical Hamilton. So instead having a totally awesome and historic sleepover in the National Archives under the Declaration of Independence was going to be it. .
In closing, Kid President shares that all stories are important and that we add to our history everyday. We most certainly do Kid President and I want to thank you for your contribution.
