Check out my latest Scholastic News Kids Press Corps article over at the Kids Press Corps Notebook blog!

With  the American Presidential election just around the corner, spoke with people outside the US to see how they  are feeling about the election in America this year.

A big thank you to Catherine Johnson CatherineMJohnson.com, D. Tulloch, from ThePatientDreamer.com, and Dr. Myra Garces-Bacsal, from GatheringBooks.org for giving me their perspectives on the election.

    I enjoyed your article. I know many people from other countries are really concerned about our election. Especially Europe and what it may mean for NATO. Very interesting time!

    Your world travelers are not the only ones worried about these elections. This could become the new norm.

      The sad truth is this country will never be the same, regardless of who wins, because the damage that’s been done and the hatred that’s been unleashed will escalate 😦

        I think that this is ridiculous how people are reacting now that the election is over, and it has nothing to do with who won or who I thought should have won. I understand a lot of people are disappointed, and that is perfectly okay, but that doesn’t mean you can have riotous behavior. I hate to think about what this shows the already troubled youth of America…
