Let me explain.
Tiny and I went to my new fav, absolutely awesome store Rue 21. (It's probably been around for forever, and I'm likely just late in discovering it, but hey...that's me.) So, we were taking our time, checking out everything in the store and just being girly. They have $2 and $5 sale racks of clothes that I always hit first and then the accessory display of sale items. And I decided that it was time to get myself some cute tee shirts. Now, I have tee shirts, but they usually all fall under two categories.....nice ones that have been ruined by stains or are thaaaaat close to not fitting anymore....or the "cleaning house, don't care how I look" tee shirts. So, I found two that I liked. The first was a Beatles shirt that has their images and "Let it Be" on it, black and white, simple and cute, extra long. Now, the second, is the "I *heart* Barack" one you see above. I thought it was great...and true. I love this president. Say what you will, how you feel, what you think...but when I see and hear him, I feel hope, I see change, and I expect more from, not only him, but myself. So, I love this shirt. I posted a pic of it on my facebook and asked on my status if people thought it would cause a stir if I wore it to church today. (Note: We attend a well known church where the majority are firm, very conservative Republicans.) I'm not a rabble-rouser, but I thought it would be interesting. After posting that, I got a wide range of responses. Here are a few:
