As an AFJROTC cadet, I have great respect for our fallen servicemen and current servicemen. The Poppy Presentation gave me a deeper meaning of what exactly these young men went through during World War 1, World War 2, and The Vietnam War. My favorite city ordinance that I heard within my city was having a non-citizen of Pine City hop on one foot and shut one eye as they hang their campaigns. I believe ordinances are important because it brings it the personality of the city as a whole and it’s also a memory to remember in the near future. The most interesting topic I learned about the American Flag was the meaning between each fold. Community Forum was my FAVORITE part of the day, hearing different sides of why a bill should be passed or not. 3 College Credit Hours from ENMU is a GREAT opportunity. We basically get 3 college hours for having a GREAT time at Girl’s State! ALA Girl’s Nation seems like a very great opportunity to advance into the next level of government and understand how our nation works. I wonder who the two beautiful young women will be!! Today, we voted for our City Offcials and it was an interesting experience, the importance is to support the people who will put great effort to help out the city and with no votes, how will the job be done?
