Leave our kids alone!

It is evident that at such a young age our children will be passionate about having their voices heard!

We took them to their first protest march in the Galway today. The protest is over the fact that the government has decided to make huge Education cuts this year in order to survive the recession we are in and although our children's school is not directly affected we wanted to show our support to the schools that are loosing teachers.

We and 8,000 other people decided to brave the rain and cold and walk down the centre of the town in protest of these budget cuts and I have to say it was quite a wonderful day. We were with a bunch of other families and they children had a great time.

However, did notice that they gravitated towards the flash of every camera they saw and I have never seen two children watch the evening news with such anticipation over seeing themselves!

That is all the WiseWords for today,
