A 7th grader's way of changing the world

I wish I could go back to believing that life is so simple.. :\

Dear Mr. President,

Recently my class has noticed hat there is a major problem with the compost heaps. In short, there is too much garbage! Therefore, I would like to respectfully offer you a few alternatives. Firstly, in some places in the North and South Poles there is virtually no wildlife. This being so, we could dump our garbage in the poles. If that would do something to hurt the environment, then I have another alternative. You could take a rocketship, put lots of garbage in it, and take the garbage to the sun where it could explode into nothing. However, that would be a little expensive, so you could instead invest money toward helping scientists discover a way to turn garbage into energy. That, I think, is the best idea of all.

A Fellow Citizen,
TRW, of Mrs. Bauer's seventh grade high science.

Lol! Hysterical! And so practical too :)

I knew there was a reason I liked you back then...you were cute. And idealist. And just...aw fine, I'll stop there. ;)

Awww. The optimism of seventh graders. Super cute. And for the record, I think sending our bio-hazards and garbage to the sun is a great idea. :)

TRW said...

Thanks! I thought so too-rather inventive, and not causing any harm to anyone ('cept the garbage ;) ). 'Course, there is that money issue...

I wish I still had that kind of imagination now...

Sometimes you simply have to think outside the box to get going on a really good idea and then the possibilities are endless!!

I'm pretty impressed with what you came up with when you were only in Grade 7 - quite creative!
Isn't it amazing how we can become so cynical and unimaginative with age. I think at times it can be healthy for adults to think like children... So what are your solutions for world peace?

i remember that class! tho i vaguely recall our class was trying to figure out how to keep the wet paper towels stuck to the ceiling rather than solve the excess garbage problems. good times...

Stx said...

Horatio--Yes! You gave yourself away! Word usage is a powerful thing...

TRW said...

Stx...I don't think so...

"Grade 7"? That's got to at LEAST give away her location... ;)
