“I dream that I’m the President of the United States of America. I will be honest, help others and do what I am told. People might think I won’t be able to do it but I think I can. I can study hard, help other people and do my chores. That is my dream of being the President of the United States of America. My plan on doing this is to learn how to be a president, learn all the presidents and see what they do to be a president. Presidents have to be fair, honest and smart and I’m all that stuff. I plan on being the president for 8 years that would be a pretty long time to be the president. The most important thing to do is to get good grades and study hard. Then I might be able to acomplish being the President of the United States of America. The problems I might have not had enough votes to be president or somebody might shoot me. People might not like me and not vote for me at all. I might not be able to be the president. I might already be dead when it’s time to run for president. Maybe I’ll forget my dream and not even want to be the President of the USA. It will be worth it. I would go through all of this just to be the president. My mom and dad will be proud. Then I might even be the President of the United States!! That is my dream of being the President of the United States.”                                                                                           — Alec (8 years)
