First place
I would like to meet Martin Luther King Jr. because he changed the way people live.

He helped black and white people get along. If he was still alive today, I would be very happy. But he is not alive today because he was shot in the head and was killed. I bet he would be dead anyway. But I am very happy he changed the way people live.

I bet he was nice. I wonder how it was for him as a boy not being able to play with white boys.

He gave wonderful speeches. I wish I was there to hear them. I would be so happy to see him give just one speech.

I like Martin Luther King Jr. a lot. He changed the world. Now black and white people like each other and black people have freedom.

My famous person is Thomas Alva Edison. He was a famous inventor of technology.

He wanted to invent an electric light bulb. It took him more than 2,000 experiments to get a working light bulb, but he never gave up.

Sometimes he worked 18 hours a day and slept at work. He also invented a movie camera and the record player. He got beaten one day by Alexander Graham Bell in inventing the telephone.

And that's history. I would like to thank Thomas Alva Edison for inventing the electric light bulb so I don't have to read by candle light.

My uncle was a famous dirt bike rider. He was really good with dirt bikes. I went down sand dunes with him on a sand dune bike.

I would like to ask my uncle if he could take me dirt bike riding again. He knows how to do backflips, wheelies, front flips and sideways flips on a dirt bike. I want him to teach me those tricks.

Dear Myranda,
I really want to meet you because you are nice and creative. I really like your TV show "iCarly." Your show is funny.

I especially liked the Halloween show when Carly and Sam were afraid of the talking pants. I want to ask you how you became so creative.

And I always wanted to say this: "You are the coolest person in the world!" Now I told you.

Martin Luther King Jr. was a good boy and when he grew up he was a good man.

He was very important because he told the white people they weren't being fair and that's why we are now allowed to be friends with white people. I would ask him if he could teach me how to be nicer.

I love Jesus with all my heart. He made planet Earth so we could live. He made the whole universe.

A long time ago there lived a woman named Mary. One day an angel came to her and he told her she will have a baby. A couple days later she had a baby. She called the baby Jesus.

I want to ask Jesus how he created the whole universe.
