I think that kids should be comfortable and safe in their hometown. I think that we need to make them feel like nothing will hurt them and they have nothing to fear. We also need more toy stores for the children and no places like bars, tattoo parlors, cigarette shop and no smoking. These things are bad influences and bad for health. We need to make things more kid friendly. Most kids are afraid the dark one way we can get rid of that fear by putting lights in dark places so there not afraid. I wanted to write a letter to our local newspaper because I think this is an important matter.
