“If I was president, I would help out people in need and clean up the community. I would travel places, and I would be a good president because I would be trustworthy just like James Madison. People would trust me, because I would not turn my back on them. I would help build homes in Africa. I hope to make history in being a president.”

“I would help people like the homeless people. I would give them something to eat and a chance to redeem themselves, like a job. I would stop all the violence in the world and let people know I’m always on watch so they won’t do anything bad.”

“I would stop fishermen from using crab traps, [because] dolphins and animals can get killed or their tails come off. I would get every gun in the world and melt them and build something good. I would build homes and schools and try to stop people from smoking. I would give a limit to how much alcohol people can drink so nothing bad happens.”

“I would try to help the environment. I would get all the homeless people and build more homeless shelters and make sure a lot of people were working there. I would try to make more libraries so people would read to get them inspired. I would make more adoption centers, and make sure no one steals or drinks. I don’t want them to die.”

What wonderfully IMSPIRED students! I am so impressed by their compassion and desire to help other people. Love the whole concept of "melting down guns to build something with them"! They are our future and I feel confident that these students have taken their first steps into a bright future!
