They said “YES!”

I have a small story to share that means a lot to the future of my kids and the kids in our hometown. Yesterday our community voted yes for a new middle school. Among other problems, the current school is asbestos-ridden, has poor air quality, not enough space, and is not shelter-ready for a dangerous storm. Seems like a no-brainer right? Well,I admit I was a little worried that it might not pass, because it was a significant tax increase. But the town pulled it together and voted yes. I couldn’t be happier for the concerned and wonderful teachers and parents in our town who pleaded and campaigned about the importance of this vote, and to the members of this community who put the safety and education of our children first…where it should be. YES!!!!
