In a recent interview, seems the Prez again feels there may be racism at play, this time, in sports. President Obama says he would "think about changing" the Washington Redskins' name... Watch his take on the issue and see if it influences your decision.
What do you think?
I thought this was a nice share....
Good Morning America had put on a contest with singer Katy Perry, who's new song called, "Roar" is filled with inspiring lyrics for young people. They asked that high schools around the country submit their own version of a music video for the song and if chosen, the singer herself would show up at the winner's school on her birthday later this month and give them a private concert.
Well, check out the submition from Norman High School, here in Oklahoma!
Talk about inspiring! There's even a story on NewsOk that features Jake Pyle. Although he has lived most of his life with Type II Spinal Muscular Atrophy, his dream, like ANY TEEN, is to drive, but customization for that requires a NEW van. Unfortunately they will not customize an older van. Yet, Jake's inspirational attitude and an overwhelming sense of school spirit, continues to spread thoughout his high school and with this contest, maybe the country now as well!
GMA says they will anounce the winning school October 14... Keep your fingers crossed and share, so that Jake's light can continue to spark others! Talk about Oklahoma spirit!
When one has his eyes upon himself alone he may miss the amazing gift we have in gratitude and in Oklahoma's True Pioneering Spriit, helping others!
Amazing to see so many come together with this year's Water 4 Gala, encouraging the very pioneering spirit of capitalism that we are known for... Then using it to help irradicate the world's water problem!
