Write about the time you first had an opinion about politics. Here are some questions to get you going. You can write your story or poem or journal from any point of view.
How old were you?
What was the issue? How were you convinced the issue was personally important to you or your family and friends?
Did you take any actions to make your opinion known?
What were the media sources giving you information at that time (includes word of mouth, rallies, discussions)?
What, if any, was the outcome of the issue?
Would you do something different today?
