These poems were written by fourth graders at Pugh Elementary School in Houston.

Dear Mr. President
I would like you to
Know to help the homeless.
Give rich to the poor.
Then never start drama
At school.
Stay strong, love the people
All around you at all
Make this a new world.
“Yes you can!”

Dear Mr. President
Stop the drugs.
Give food to the hungry.
Do you like being
This country is protected.
Thank you.
