Sesame Street had a great initiative producing materials in support for the veterans families with young children coping with the death of a parent. The creative team addressed the issue tastefully and hopefully the children who need support in very difficult times will feel that people around understand them even Elmo and his friends do.
Let me make it clear: I like Elmo. He was a great babysitter when the boys were little. You can always trust Elmo and Rosita with your kids for 30 minutes. They are a positive force in the American life. However in the past year it seems the shows think-tank has moved from Sesame Street to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. At the Easter celebrations at the White House everything that may resemble religion was missing, but Elmo was there making the children move. Maria even read the book Stretch as a contribution to the new campaign of the First Lady Michelle Obama against the childhood obesity...
