This is an example of the "My Wish" project done by my son's second grade class. There were a few of them with this same sentiment. It breaks my heart that the kids are stressing about the economy too. We're in Rochester, MI near Chrysler HQ, and many people in our neighborhood are in the auto industry. I see more dads on the playground picking up kids from school than in years past, which is nice in a way, but also makes it clear how many lives have been recently changed. (The author's nickname is "Little Mouse" in their second grade mouse world game.)
