In order to run for Student Council, I had to sign a permission slip and we had a long talk about winning or losing. Jack said he would be happy for anyone in his class, no matter the winner! Next, he made a poster
The final step in preparing Jack was a speech he would give to his class! Eric helped him compose the speech
which Jack mainly wrote and Molly, Will and I were his audience! I was very impressed with his promise to be responsible, respectable, and honest! And, of course, the promise for open seating on Fridays! Maybe a future in politics?!
On Election Day, Jack was ready! He had his poster, which could only be displayed during his speech, and his speech! He told us that after all 11 candidates gave their speeches, his class voted, but no one knew the results until the following day! Torture! Jack felt like he did good and knew he had some votes, but said he was happy no matter who won! Sweet boy!
The next day was a little nerve wracking! But, when I picked Jack up from school, he was all smiles! Yes! I thought! He won! Well, he gets into the car and says, "Luke and Maggie won! I'm so happy for them!" What a wonderful boy! Luke is a great friend of Jack's and Jack said Maggie won because her poster had lights!
We are so proud of our Jack wanting to run for Student Council, writing his speech, giving a speech in front of his class, and having a beautiful heart for being happy for all the winners!
Way to go Jack! We're all proud of you!
