Today I went to vote at Cider Mill at 4:00pm. I had 5 kids in the car with me. As we were pulling in, a car in front of us stopped, a young boy got out, and grabbed the sign of one of the presidential nominees out of the ground, threw it into the car and off the car went. Two of the boys in my car said that’s “name” (a fellow eighth grade boy they go to school with in Wilton). I was watching in disbelief, not sure at first what was happening, once I realized, I was shocked (pretty brazen act to perform in front of polling place in the middle of the afternoon with so many people around). More shocking than a 13/14 year old boy pulling a political sign out of the ground (kids do foolish things) was the fact that he was being driven around by an adult, I would guess either his grandmother or babysitter. At first we thought to follow them, this was a felony after all, then I realized that would be setting a bad example for a car full of kids so we just discussed. Mainly we discussed how people can disagree with each other politically, and have respectful, thoughtful conversations. And how people who pull sign out of the ground are generally people you cannot have a thoughtful conversation with (kids want action and wanted to know what I planned to do about the offenders). I am hoping that this grandmother/babysitter sees this and maybe realizes the lesson they are teaching is not the right one about the political process, and life in general.
