Washington, DC – Douglas’ Experience

My week in Washington, DC that started on Thursday was an adventure. We went to Capitol Hill, the White House, Newseum, and the Holocaust museum. When we went to Capitol Hill we had to take everything out of our pockets and walk through a metal detector. We had lunch there and also had a chance to meet a Congressman and a Congresswoman. They were so happy to see us. Both of them gave us quotes and encouragement. Congressman Elijah Cummings said whenever people call us the future we should say “no, we are the NOW” and other things like that. Congresswoman Yvette Clarke said that what disappoint her as a Congresswoman is that all the bills about children she would like to see became laws do not become laws. When we went to the White House I was hoping to see President Obama but we didn’t. We saw almost all the rooms in the White House and learned about their background. In the White House I learned how Teddy Roosevelt challenged people to fight him in a private room in the white house. Today in the museum we watched a 4-D movie about a form of news gathering. Also in the Holocaust museum there were many exhibits about the Nazis and I learned that Jesus was Jewish.

Young People’s Role Model – Douglas’ Idea

I think we should look up to the current president and our parents or guardians as role model. We should look up to President Obama because he made a change by becoming the first black president.  Also, because as president he makes us think we can become what we want to. We should look up to our parents because seeing them working hard to get us what we want and need should show us what we want to be when we grow up.

Volunteer Abroad or at Home – Douglas’ Idea

I would go back to South Africa to help many more people with giving them food and clothes try to also make their homes bigger so it is good enough for their family. I would try to give them gifts for their kids so they can have something to play with.

Child Obesity – Douglas’ Idea

I think Mayor Bloomberg should have more gyms open for the kids, so we could work out more. If he opens more gyms it would keep the obesity down. I also think the kids should have their food prepared and start having more control of what they can and cannot have to eat. They can also have a journal so that they can write what they ate and what their weight is.
