A little more than two weeks ago, I discovered a whole new world through a minor rite of passage. Now that I am 18 years of age, I can contribute to the community by having my opinion make a difference in the town’s future. What is this incredible new experience I ventured, you might ask? I’ll give you a hint, we had a day off from school because it was just that important. You guessed it, voting!
I’m sure voting for an adult, who has been doing it for years, feels that it is pretty ordinary and nothing big should be made out of it, but if it’s your first time, it can be fairly invigorating.
