Truman for President

My friends, Will and Kendi, have such an amazing kid. This past spring he was running for 2nd grade president. Each candidate was to write a speech and deliver it to the class prior to the big vote. Here is the text of Truman's brilliant and stirring speech...

I promise that if you vote for me, Truman, as your next class president I will ask the principal if we can have lines drawn on the football field, and I'll ask the teacher if we can have drinks at the drinking fountain for as long as we want to and have unlimited pencil sharpening on Wednesdays and no "power-ups" in four square. Thank you for listening - remember a vote for me is a vote for you!

Ahhhh...what would you give for kid issues?
