I’m 15 and I’m a freshman in high school. I have a 3.81 GPA, and I have a full honors schedule. I tend to get sick a lot, so I take more days off in a year than most kids, but I quickly make up the work. It is hard work every time I miss a day from school, but I understand that. I’m a determined student who aspires to do well. Here is my predicament: I want to stay home tomorrow to watch the inauguration but my mom, with good reason, is against it.

I don’t like missing school, but I believe tomorrow is an appropriate day to take off. I am VERY into politics, and have followed this election since 2006. Even though I have conservative views and never really cared for Obama, he is still going to be sworn in as the leader of the free world tomorrow; a very historic moment that will never be forgotten. It would mean a lot to me to see him be sworn in live on TV. Now yes, I know I COULD record it, but it’s not the same. It’s kinda like recording the ball drop on new years and watching it the next day. Who wants to see it after it’s happened? There’s something magical about watching an event like that in real time.

My mom is very Christian, as am I, but I swear she thinks Obama is the anti-Christ. She hates him and doesn’t trust him. She’s usually cool with things like this, but she won’t let me stay home and she won’t budge on this one.

I really want to see this historic event, but my mom disagrees with me that it is important. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.
