Happy Birthday Sesame Street

Unless you live under a rock you've probably noticed that Sesame Street turned 40 this week.  I figured I would jump on the bandwagon and post something of my own.

This is from Child Fest 2009, hosted by The Children's Cancer Foundation.  They brought down the actual Elmo (Kevin Clash) and Rosita (Carmen Osbahr) from New York to do a performance and pose for pictures to raise money for research. Approx. 85 cents of every dollar contributed to the Foundation goes directly to support cancer research and the building of cancer facilities which is virtually unheard of now a days.

The surreal part of the day was that it was hosted at Reservoir High School in Howard County, MD.  Which is essentially the same design as the my old High School, Long Reach, just accross the wa.  Same Set up, same building, different place, and with several thousand children.
Happy Birthday Sesame Street!
