November 4--Making History
In past elections, I was never one of those underage teenagers who had a strong opinion about who should become President. I thought of it as my parents ordeal and I tended to stay out of it (except for the actual polling--I loved marking the dots for my mom when I was a kidling). As this year's election grew nearer, the pressure was on for me to do my research and make an educated decision about which ONE man I believed should lead our country. How does anyone do that? How are we supposed to predict exactly which man will clean up the mess of the last 8 years and provide a solid future for us? I felt the disagreements of the two parties burning as I did my best (as someone who has little to no interest in politics) in making a decision. As I neared my polling place with my Aunt and Logan, I prayed that my final decision was the right decision and I embraced the experience of being a part of this historical election as I voted for my first time.
