If I could earn a living doing what I loved, I would take care of less fortunate children. I grew up with a very good home life and I think every child deserves that. Everyone is always talking about how the children are our future. How are we supposed to have a future if the younger generations aren’t being taken care of? I want every child to know that they are loved and that they have somewhere they can call home at the end of the day. To make all of this happen I would improve early intervention programs and funding for them. I would also have more programs started to help the families of the children get back on track as well. Opening up more shelters and homes for children and their families who are homeless would take precedence over opening up a new hotel, sports stadium, or skyscraper. We have plenty of tall buildings and places to throw or kick a ball around, but not enough buildings meant to offer help to those who need it most. I may not be able to help every child or their families. If I can only ever help one child I would be happy knowing that there is one less needy child out there.
