Running the world
Hi readers, it’s Emily and William here this week talking about running the world, and what we would do if we had a chance to do that!
To us, running the world means being in charge of every single country, and hoping everyone does what we say. We both agree that our biggest aims would be that everyone is treated the same, there is peace and harmony, no more wars, all countries have enough food, water and clothes, there is no homelessness, no more poverty and that everyone is equal. Not much to ask!
What we can’t quite get our heads around is that if someone is in charge, are they still equal to everyone else? We would be fair to everyone, and aside from ruling the world, we’d still live in the same house and have the same money as before.
We also will make the world greener by getting all countries to be eco- friendly like use more recycled products, electric cars. We’d ask green advisors to help us, as we are no experts on these matters.
Oh, and another thing. We’d like to see less animal cruelty, and have bigger penalties for people who abuse animals.
We would also encourage people to be kinder to each other, and more considerate. We’d ask people on the news to be kind, and keep praising kind actions, and hopefully report back that the world is the kindest it’s ever been.
We might need others to help us run the world, like our friends and People First Dorset. They are good at running things!
Have you thought about running the world? What would you do, and what matters are most important for you to get right.
