My Daughter Writes Her Presidential Campaign Statement

As Lincoln’s Birthday and Washington’s Birthday approach, my 6-year-old daughter Rose’s teacher told them to write their own three-sentence statement about what they would do if they were President.  This was a somewhat frightening prospect for me: who knows what my daughter will write?  And, of course, how will it reflect on me?  Am I teaching her the right values?

Then, Rose showed me her platform:

If I were President, I would tell everyone that we need to protect the environment.  I would make sure to save all the animals that are endangered.  And if I were President, I would write a law to stop all litering [sic].

My work is done here.
