Hey Friends of RanchoBozo.com and ipeace.me
I taught in Bolinas School in a 7/8th grade class yesterday. I saw self motivated middle schools students using communication skills and math as a tools to solve real hands on problems. This is due to master teachers Don Jolley and Willow It was great working with their capable students.
Carol baked some delectable cake that tasted like the best cookie ever The hippy feel of Bolinas is inspiring and radiates an influence towards peace. I took this picture on my way home : a farm house in Bolinas, California.
On Martin Luther King Day Genna, Kaz, and I participated in our own community service activity.
We put on rubber gloves and picked up all the trash and recycled every thing we could find in
Old Mill Park in our community Mill Valley, California.
I feel connected in a special way. I was a substitute for two teachers that proudly represented our school; Martin Luther King Middle School in Marin City/Sausalito, California in Washington, DC.
students and staff attended an Inaugural Celebration that included breakfast and a presentation by the
color guard of Balboa, HS. of San Francisco and a prayer circle by our Miwok native elders. Our celebration took place in a community center in Marin City. I posted digital photos on our Obama photobucket website. I've never before felt so connected to my President and the direction we must go.

When Barack Obama was declared our 44th President, you didn't just revel in that victory -- you started asking what's next for this movement.
How is this unprecedented group of volunteers, grassroots leaders, and dedicated supporters going to help make change a reality?
More than half a million people shared their thoughts and ideas about moving forward, and we listened carefully. Last week, President Obama announced the creation of Organizing for America -- a group that will work alongside the President to support the agenda you fought so hard for.
You can be part of its first steps.
Watch a short video message I recorded with Mitch Stewart, Executive Director of Organizing for America, and learn more about this new organization you helped build.
You've already invested in the future of this country -- whether you voted, donated money, helped organize your local community, or got involved in countless other ways.
But right now, your participation in the political process is more important than ever. We'll soon be asking you to give whatever time or talent you can to support the President. With your help, we can bring change to Washington and the entire nation.
I look forward to working with you in the months and years ahead.
Obama for America
