I have a felling that no matter how big he gets, he will always be an awesome and giving person. He proves my theory in a new PSA.

Leslie Unleashes On Herself When Her Son Has to Remind Her About the Importance of Giving to Others

I pride myself on the kind hearts of my children. While raising them, I ALWAYS tried to instill a sense of empathy toward others. I am happy to say they are all very giving and nonjudgmental individuals. I really want them to have a 'What would Jesus do?' mentality. In our world today, it's hard to teach that kind of love. But, that's not going to stop me. And, it shouldn't stop you either.

When I saw this video, I was outraged!! And YOU will be too. But, after we clench our fists in anger, grit our teeth and shake our head, we must stand back and remember to teach love.

Is the Presidential Inauguration Celebration Out of Step With America?

Yesterday was a big day for President Obama with his second inauguration, but today, a few questions. My wife and I were watching the highlights of the day on the news last night and it struck us both how extravagant the celebration was with all of the pageantry that we - and the taxpayers pay for.
