Today’s lesson: P is for propaganda.
Even Sesame Street isn’t safe from DC politics these days. While the beloved children’s show has had some questionable moments, nothing could prepare parents for the creepy and disturbing political push coming down Sesame Street.
The Sesame Street mascot Big Bird sent a message on Twitter Saturday urging children to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
And if that wasn’t weird enough, Big Bird appeared on CNN to do an entire segment meant to convince children to get the coronavirus vaccine.
Parents can be pro-vaccine and still disturbed by this odd use of a children’s TV show character to push a vaccine that was just approved for kids. And for a character that’s supposed to be a distraction from all of the controversial things happening in the world, seeing Big Bird appear on CNN to push the vaccine on kids is a little creepy.
Can’t we just let kids be kids and keep them out of politics as long as possible?

A group of Wisconsin students wanted their teacher to know how much she means to them, and they showed their appreciation in a very special way.
Carol Mack, a 1st and 2nd-grade teacher at Christ Lutheran School in Big Bend, is facing a grim reality as her fight against cancer comes to an end.
Mack won’t be returning to the classroom. Instead, her stage 4 diagnosis necessitates hospice care.
But before Mack went into hospice, a colleague wanted her to reunite with her students one more time. So, a group of her current and former students gathered outside the hospital with Mack and sang hymns and songs of worship.
“It was overwhelming and very special. I hope people see how much these kids and their teacher loved each other and how our school community came together,” said Carol.
