Best Excuse Eva!

Did you hear about the 10-year-old who went to a meeting where President Barack Obama was speaking? Her dad mentioned that she was skipping school to be there, so the Prez wrote her a note!

Note said...
To Kennedy's teacher,
Please excuse the absence. She's with me.
Barack Obama

Watch a video of what happened!

It was very sweet of him. I found the girl to be quite mature for her age - she sure doesn't look like a ten-years-old!

I'm not from the United States (nor from an English-speaking country, actually), but I still admire Barack Obama. I kind of hope my country could have the same sort of President. But we're not here to speak about politics ;).

The video was very cute, and I'm quite impressed to see the girl could stay so cold-headed while answering so many questions! I, like lots of girls, would have just melted and started to stutter.
