If Kids Could Vote

The following poem was inspired by the many students who spoke out at last night’s Joint Finance Committee meeting. May their optimism and open-mindedness carry on with them into adulthood… and reemerge in others who have lost those qualities.

If kids could vote, they would not be ignored.

If kids could vote, there would be an end to war.

If kids could vote, no schools would need to close.

If kids could vote, all would be fed, sheltered and clothed.

If kids could vote, we would live in a better place.

If kids could vote, our future would be safe.
