Moroccan American Kids Seek the White House

It is afternoon and I am at the Mclean Community Center in VA to attend an event.  As soon as I set a foot in the room, I am already exchanging hugs with faces I had not seen for months if not years, and hellos with individuals I meet for the first time.  In the middle of the room, there are tables lined up with about 32 kids, age ranging from 2 to 14 years old, who are drawing with crayons.  Some of them are demanding that their parents check on their work for approval while others are adamant that their parents do not even peek at their crafts.  MBTV was busy interviewing kids and capturing these moments.  On the far left corner of the room, there is a table with juices, water, and various types of cookies.
