Of course our kids wanted to get in on the online action, so they wrote a script and recorded a video.

They based their script on one of my son’s homework assignments from a few weeks ago when his teacher asked him to write a short essay about a dream he has for a better world. Here’s that original essay. Enjoy their video below:
