Meghan's Speech About Voting
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 Meghan ran into the kitchen. "Mom! Mom!" she cried.
2 Mom stopped her at the door to the dining room. "What's the matter?"
3 Meghan stepped back and sank down into a kitchen chair. "I have to give a speech in class next week," she said, horrified.
4 Mom giggled. "Well, that's practice you will need. You'll have to make a lot of speeches to become president someday."
5 "Very funny," said Meghan, despondent.
6 "What is the speech about?" asked Mom.
7 "Our right to vote," said Meghan.
8 "Meghan, everybody has to give oral reports. If you do a good job of planning, you'll be fine. Most of the time it's just lack of confidence that causes jitters."
9 "Then I need to gain a lot of confidence," said Meghan. "I also need some books. Can we go to the library later?"
10 "Sure," said Mom. "After I put dinner in the oven, we can go over to the library. Why don't you go work on your homework right now?"
11 "Okay," said Meghan.
