Did you stay up late to watch the results of the presidential election?

November 9, 2012

Chad Uhl ( in Bonner Springs High School senior ) says...

“To celebrate the 2012 election, I invited a few friends over to share in the stress as the election dwindled to a close. We watched intensely until CNN officially predicted Barack Obama’s re-election. After the announcement, we shared hugs and thoughtful quips until the last votes came in. I had to stay away from Twitter and other forms of social media because of the anger I knew would ensue on each site; I honestly didn’t want any part of that. I would rather watch the results with people of like-mind than try to explain my position to the varying degrees of opinions on social media sites.”

April Jeffries (Instructor and Welcome Center staff member, Bonner Springs YMCA in ) says...

“I didn’t stay up late to watch. My husband did, and he told me the results as soon as I got up this morning.”
