To President Obama,
If I were president, I would help the people. If we don’t throw the trash away, we are going to get sick. I could walk around to check where there is trash.

Dear Barack Obama,
Congrats on becoming the president of the United States and slaughtering John McCain. I think that, unlike W., you should dodge other countries and not shoes. You should not be so quick to go to war and negotiate with terrorists. I like what you said about bringing the troops home from Iraq.
If you like my letter, know that it’s from

Dear Mr. Obama,
My name is Lydia and I am 10 years old. I am from Seattle, Washington. My favorite thing to do is to read and my favorite book is nonfiction. It is about horses and how to ride. I am very happy you were elected president. I love your speeches. My friends and I looked on the computer when you were doing your speech. I was wondering what kind of dog you are getting. I think you should get a Labradoodle and name it Soñador (it means “dreamer” in Spanish). I hope you can change our state and the United States.
