Okay – I wanted to leave this one alone, but after going back and watching the video, I decided this is just too good to not mess with.
Miss Teen South Carolina was recently crowned 3rd runner up (that’s fourth place to you and me) but not until she was put through the rigorous question and answer portion of the Miss Teen USA Pageant. And remember folks – this is NOT a beauty contest. It is a scholarship pageant. Well, it’s a good thing!
She was asked why she thought one fifth of Americans are unable to locate the US on a world map. (Insert dramamtic pause and tense music.)
Well, duh. They’ve gotta have maps first!
Honestly, I was unaware of the shortage of maps in America. How could we have been so blind and so unaware of this tragedy? Where are the “Save the Maps” bumper stickers and the “No Map left Behind” supporters? People, we need to come together as a country and make sure that no household has to suffer through the humility of not having a map and therefore not being able to locate the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! I, for one, am not going to sit here while this goes on in the country I love so dearly. I want to see a movement sweep this nation so that every family has a map, an atlas or at least a globe in their home. Are you with me?
Let’s do it…for the children. Such as.
