When we were all live blogging here during Obama's speech at the Democratic convention in Denver, my 8 year old niece Mylah was watching and taking notes. This is her report about what he said, with some personal comments at the end.
The government should help us, not turn away.
When Mr. Obama is President, he will do more to make sure that every kid in America gets a good education.
When Mr. Obama is President, he will make sure that all health insurance companies in America pay what they are supposed to pay and that it will be easier for everyone, even poor people to get health insurance.
We should all put our Country first.
Like Mr. Obama said "Change doesn't come from Washington, it comes to Washington."
We can't turn back to the past 8 years.
I think that Mr. Obama will make it possible for us as a country to move forward.
Sometimes I feel like I don't fit in, and it would be awesome to have a President that looks just like me.
God Bless America.
