Oct 04, 2012 Debate Last night my son experienced watching his first presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. He clearly expressed his thoughts on how boring he found each candidate to be by continuously trying to turn off the television set. I kept on having to take the remote control from his hands. I wonder how I will be able to inspire him to value being part of a democracy and how to be an informed citizen. I guess I have 17 years to persuade him to be an informed voter.
