Hey, what about Bush?

One day over the intercom after the daily announcements at North Lake Middle School the speaker said that there was somewhat of a field trip to see Al Gore. My family and I are Republicans. I just ignored it. So every day they said to get a registration form to go. After they went I heard nothing about it. It was some time later and getting close to voting. (Our school had a mock election.) One night I told my parents about the field trip and then my Dad told me that George W. Bush had just been in our state. Then I told my Mom and Dad that the school said nothing about a field trip to go see George W. Bush. I was mad. When I finished dinner I got on my computer to type this story. If they did have a field trip, I would try to go. I felt mad.

I think it is unfair that they got to only go see Al Gore and not George W. Bush.
