Petition drive falls short. Millions of kids signed an online petition to move daylight savings time up 2,160 hours which would make today June 10, 2013 and the start of summer vacation. Ben Westbrook of Austin, Texas organized the drive. He told KoookaBoooka that he was proud of the effort kids put forth but feels like the drive started too late and that they will need to double their efforts next year. KoookaBoooka supports this outside the box thinking and wishes them only the best on their quest.
