It Began

The morning began with the city candidates giving their speeches. We started work and planning for the mayor's conference after. We went to a group meeting in the Cub. In this meeting we were told about the poppies of Flander's Fields. My impression of this ceremony was astonished and felt a sense of connection with the poppies. As the big group meeting they also explained ALA Girls Nation peaking the interest of a few girls wanting to participate. Then at the end of the meeting they announced city election results. After the results we were split back into our separate cities where we talked about ordinances. We brainstormed ideas about what we would have as ours that applied to other cities campaigning. After that we had our nightly city meeting. Then some of us prepared for their speeches for the next day.
