    You might review and correct – the tab says Paul Abdul, not Paula.

      Facts don’t matter to the Emmy Award Winning writers at CCzero.

    From their website…………,

    “WE Day is an inspirational event fueled by an educational initiative, WE Schools. Together, they connect and empower a new generation to shift the world from “me” to “we”—from a focus on the individual to the power of community.”

    Now there should be programs for older people too, these kids now have to go out in the world and fight against the “me, mine, I” generation just to be good citizens, good active contributing members of their communities.

    It’s easy to be selfish, I applaud these young folks for wanting to be different, to be better…
