Kinston Students Say "Yes We Can"

Students from one school in eastern Carolina came together to say "Yes we can."

Southeast Elementary School principal Felicia Solomon says her school in Kinston has accepted what President Barack Obama has declared to be the American decree.

Solomon says her students are celebrating the 44th President by saying "Yes we can" to maintaining good test scores and making a difference in the community.

Solomon says with the election of the new President her students now know nothing is unattainable.

    And again, one who hides and hates, you give no facts, no substance, just the baseless accusations of evil and references to things long passed. Who are the "you people" that you mention. The "you people" who have brought five continents from the stone age to the space age and are currently working with all patience and diligence to drag the only other habitable continent out of the stone age as well. Those "you people" have an outstanding history of achievement. Although that "you people" have made a few mistakes along the way, they have been the tail that have waged the entire dog for centuries. They are feeding, clothing, housing and providing education and medical care to the world. They are truly a big-hearted "you people". I am proud to be one of them.

    WOW!! Hurt my feelings! (LOL) There is absolutely nothing "you people" can say that would hurt my feelings. Honestly, your history speaks for itself. We have heard it all from "you people." When you are evil, your deeds are evil as well.

    Since WITN wouldn't let me hurt your "feelings", I will say this as pc as I can. This story was about school officials and teachers indorsing a politician, a political party and a ideology in a public school setting. This is wrong, but celebrated by a politically correct media. When the next white, male Republican president is elected, let's have an equal display of enthusiasm, unkhaaaay. This is not about fantasies of men running around people lawns in sheets in 2009. You are 100,000 times as likely to have a crew of crips ride by and put 500 bullet holes in your house.

    Am I to assume your real name is Tad and you are from Jamesville? (LOL) I am not revealing my identity because I do not want to encounter grown white men in hooded white sheets in my yard! I just do not care for crossings burning on the lawn. Just not my cup of tea!

    You are so predictable! I expected that response from you. Is that your justification? What would Jesus do? Do you think Jesus would have participated in lynchings and treated people like animals? No, I have not slurred Christianity. In fact, it's "you people" who claim to be saints and are as evil as the devil that have tainted the word Christian. However, God yet loves you. Kind regards.
