MY TURN: The Great Peabody Debate

Posted: Updated:

Congratulations to the students, teachers, and parents at Peabody Elementary School who staged a fabulous presidential debate and election at the school this week.

Students played the roles of President Obama and Mitt Romney in the debate, the school cafeteria was transformed into a "presidential experience" and after the debates the students got to cast their ballots for president in a mock election.

The Peabody students aren't the only ones voting early. A High Five also goes out to the thousands of citizens in Tennessee and Arkansas who did their duty by voting early in this year's election. Now, it's time for the rest of us.

Please take time this weekend to study the candidates and issues that you may be uncertain about, and then make a firm plan to cast your ballot on Tuesday. We're very fortunate to live in a country where we have the right to vote, and those kids at Peabody Elementary are counting on us.

That's my turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
