My Son Lost the Election but Still Won

My son lost the election, and I am devastated. I was his campaign manager, top fundraiser, and biggest supporter. He campaigned for an entire month only to lose. The official tally wasn’t released, but it was said that he lost by the slimmest margin. No, he didn’t run for governor or for the city commission. He ran to be the first black 3rd-grade representative and lost to an 8-year-old that promised “Chocolate Days.”…
