Honorable people will stand up for their beliefs despite adversity.

Young Simms knows election day will be a big day for his papa and for all of Lamar County. For the very first time, Papa will get to vote. Simms wants his father to be able to sign his name on the ballot so he is determined to teach him. The son knows his father has pride but lacks the skill. "Papa, let me show you how to write your name. Then you will never have to make that X again." Every night his father practiced. Despite threats, Papa shows his son the meaning of heroism and courage.
