Virginia's 11-year-old Grace Karaffa has begun a petition that would allow her to bring a currently banned item to class at Stuarts Draft Elementary School. Grace had been told that she couldn't bring the item because other students might be allergic to it, even though the manufacturer stated that it's been used safely for over 100 years. First, Grace spoke to her teacher, then her principal, who told her to write a letter to the school board. Grace was then asked to speak before the board and was cross examined as to why the ban should be lifted.

All this trouble and debate is over whether Grace should be allowed to bring Chap Stick to school to prevent her lips from bleeding.
