I remember hearing about how Jimmie Carter won the election against Gerald Ford.

I remember thinking, "Well, Voni, how does it feel to have a new president?" It didn’t feel any different. (Which is, I think, the secret of the American Constitution.)

I also remember thinking, "Well, at least we’ll have a government who cares about kids." Silly me. As a conservative Christian homeschooler, I now recognize that liberal lie for what it is: just because conservatives didn’t want a Department of Education didn’t mean they hated kids. Or education. It means they disagreed about the best way to educate kids. We’re still discussing those same educational issues today.

Blessings,
Voni
