Democrat Terry McAuliffe won the Virginia governor's race. That makes me very happy becasue I voted for him. McAuliffe was ahead with just 48 percent of the vote, to Cuccinelli’s 45 percent. (FoxNews.com). Everyone should go out and vote with any election that we have. It doesn't matter if the elections is big or small. You have the right to vote, So go out and vote for what you believe in!

My least favorite poem from the seven we had to read is " After great pain, - a formal feelings comes-" I really didn't understand what she was trying to say in this. Then it was confusing. Now my favorite is the "After Apple Picking". Now that one just seem a little bit happy. It was very detailed about what type of dreams & about sleep. And plus it wasn't sad & depressing. All of the things we read are just sad stories. It was nice to read one that wasn't sad.

So I was in my English class & me & a class mate were on Instagram & we saw this post. The post was about a children story. It was call "The night my dad went to jail" This is just crazy. Why would you want your child to read this?! If that situation would happen to a family, which I hope no family should go through that, but it's the parents duty to tell their children what's going on not a book. This is the type of stuff that would me homeschool my kids, if I had any. I feel like they are trying to expose kids too fast. Let them be kids.

Okay, I really don't have that you at much insight on all this but I think this is just crazy. How can you just shut down the government?! It's our government. It seems like they are trying to hurt not help us. 800,000 thousand people are out of work as we speak. That's a lot of people! National park and landmarks are closed for business. The people that work for them will not be paid. The house and the senate cant agree on a spending, so they just going to just shut it down? Who knows how long this going to last? A week, a month, a year? The damage that's going to happen because of this isn't worth a shut down of the government because they are bumping heads.
