The link to the assignment is here.
The assignment says to pick a historically significant event and write a journal entry as if I traveled back in time and took place in it.
Today is a remarkable day. These past few months I haven’t really been paying much attention to anything else but trying to piece my life together but today, it seems like everyone is on edge. Lately I’ve been seeing political warfare amongst everyone. If you’re not democratic then you can’t go certain places, tension is rising! People that haven’t voted in decades are out voting today and, even though my mother hates to stand in lines, she even stood in line to vote today.
I can’t wait for this to be over. I’ve been having arguments with my friends as if it really mattered but, we seemed to disagree on voting privileges. They aren’t voting because they have been following the politics, hell they barely even understand politics. They were voting for someone because Oprah said to do so! And apparently, anyone that Oprah endorses is gold! Eh, no matter.
I didn’t plan on watching the final results tally but I knew if I didn’t I’d see it all over myspace tomorrow; plus it was on almost every channel. And I may not have been following all the politics, and I may not care much about them, but even I couldn’t help but shed a tear as America voted in the first African American president. Today, was a remarkable day. And someday when I get old, I’ll be able to tell my grandchildren, that I remember that 🙂
Until tomorrow, goodnight 🙂
