lower gas prices? give money to the poor? bring the soldiers back? make smoking illegal? require everyone to graduate from high school? help keep the earth clean? try to bring peace to the world?
OR would you . . .give out more ice cream? make more toys? outlaw gym class?
OR would you start by throwing a big party?
These are some the the responses we've received at Oaklyn Branch to our kids' form "If I were President I would . . ." We'll keep posting these on the bulletin board in the kids' area this month. If you're a kid, come fill out a form yourself, and we'll put it up. If you're not a kid, come see the good ideas our kids have, and be reassured that we have many very thoughtful young people around here.
And in the meantime, what would you do if you were President? I especially like the replies that said they'd throw a big party, because that's just about the first thing a new President does after he's elected.
