It was a late, cool evening in the month of June, and I had just got out of my vigorous, tiring wrestling practice. I packed up my things and started walking to the vending machines. I was so happy to finally replenish my body with the fluids that was missing after sweating 3 pounds off my muscular body. I slowly take 4 quarters out of my pocket and happily release them into the machine. I had been waiting for this moment for 3 long hours. When I finally made impact with the deliciously sounding button, a voice was heard down the hall. It was my history teacher, Mr. Rose. He blurted out, "Trang, you know there's no more soda in the vending machines because of the soda ban right?" I dropped my bags and feel to my knees. Everything seemed blurry and I couldn't think right. The disgusting sentence repeated itself over and over again in my head. I started to cry. I was dramatized for the rest of my junior high career. That evening really made me think. WHY? Why ban soda? I mean it's an excellent source of profit for the school's spending funds. And besides, banning soda from schools isn't going to stop students from buying it from other places. It's just a big incovenice. One of the main reasons why the soda ban even started was because Deborah Ortiz, the Senator of Sacramento, thought soda was one of the main causes for child obesity. Well you know what my fellow friends? It's not. So why is this crazy woman banning soda from schools? We may never know. But the point is, banning soda from schools is just plain ridiculous. Soda shouldn't be banned because it helps with school spending funds, its just a big inconvenient, and there's nothing wrong about drinking soda. According to Principal Elvin Mormon, Victor Valley High School could lose up to $50,000 each year just because of not being able to sell soda. Now how drastic is that? With that large amount of money, you can create more educational programs to help needy students excel in their life, or even buy more lockers for the students that are unfortunate to get one. But NO. Instead, poor innocent students have to suffer by the shortage of buses and no awards for outstanding students. Now what kind of sick person would want to do this? I mean, think about it. Would you really take the risk of banning soda and hope that this would not affect the Californian schools? Or just keep soda in schools and have everything nice and peaceful like it already was? Another example of this horrible decision is the schools throughout Virginia. They are loosing a total of about 100 million dollars a year just because of selling harmful little cans of soda. Now what are they going to do about the lost money they was foolishly taken from them?I hope...
