School election

Write a comment This story reminds me of when I was in 8th grade. A classmate, Ruben, and I ran for King and Queen of our 8th grade class. The winners would be determined by penny vote, the one bringing in the most pennies or votes would win. Ruben and I worked hard, we had little fundraisers, classmates had bake sales, etc. to support us. Someone dropped the story on us that the girl running in opposition to us, that her father was wealthy and actually, he was. And we heard he was having a big event for her, a barbeque, to help her get votes. This made our little efforts seem puny and trivial in comparison, and we lost heart, and probably didn't keep fighting as we should have. After all the votes were in, our opposion did win, but not by much at all. Made me wonder if we hadn't gotten demoralized, and had kept up our strong effort, maybe we would have won. Well, we came in second place, which still was okay. But in this Pres election, second place doesn't count. Don't give up, don't get demoralized listening to the Obama machine. Keep on truckin', Vote McCain/Palin.
