Make the cherry official

My latest story in the Christian Science Monitor is about a group of kids in a special needs class that are fighting to make the cherry the official fruit of Washington, DC. The kids are guided in this effort by their teacher, Terry Bunton.

Making a fruit — or any other symbol — official is not an easy task, but it does offer a glimpse into the American legislative process. Official symbols are an interesting phenomenon to read about.
