Can you imagine trying to inspire over 100 teenagers and to make them believe that "Yes, THEY can" during the inauguration of Barack Obama with a 1989 model television which has reception that makes the screen look like someone threw a stone into the middle of it so that they could watch the color ripple, in at least 15 different waves, to the edge of the screen?! That is exactly how my Mississippi high school students watched the our first African American president's inauguration on the only closed channel TV in my classroom. We watched, and we listened, and we even cried tears of joy, but that was only AFTER one particularly vocal kid told me that it was "pathetic" that we had to watch the event on such a "sorry" TV. I couldn't have agreed more.
