I think we should be allowed to read in bed tonight.
The core democratic value I would use for this situation is the common good. Reading could increase our reading level just a bit.
Reading is a subject everyone needs. People need to read to drive, cook, build, etc. Without reading the world would be a mess.
The average reading teacher would say, "Read as much as you can!" Others may say, "It is way past your bedtime!" (that would be a reference to me a few minutes earlier) However, I disagree; because bedtimes can be delayed on nights you get to sleep in. Half an hour of reading never deprived anyone of sleep. ( I beg to differ)
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. (As I heard her giggling in the next room)
Love your amazing daughter,
Here was my reply.....
Because of the common good....
I do believe that I need to thank a teacher for the inspiration for this letter. Thank you, Mrs. Brown. I guess they had to write letters like this in class and Mrs. Brown told the kids to try it at home. Bwahahahahaha Teachers are sooooooo awesome!
