The Day I Became President
By Mark Macluskie

The day I became President . . . I should probably tell you about that day. So, I will. It all happened. It all happened one night when I was reading my book. I got up and got a glass of water, when I saw on the kitchen table the Sunday newspaper. It had an ad in it that said a there was a video game contest and the grand prize was a day as the President. In the next week, I sent in my masterpiece. Three weeks later I got a reply. It said “Dear Mark, you have won the grand prize: A free trip to Washington, D.C. and a day as President.” Oh my goodness!!!! I could not believe what I was reading. It said we were supposed to go in two days. This was awesome.

My parents and I just got off the plane, and I could not believe that I was in Washington, D.C. When we were walking towards the exit, we saw a tall man with a black suit on holding a sign with my name on it. The man said, “Are you Mark Macluskie?” I said “yes.” When we got to where he was taking us we found a huge limousine. There was a cooler with plenty of root beer. I have never been so excited in my life. When we got there, the first thing I did was get out of the limo and look at the White House. It was too beautiful to explain. I had the man unlock the gate. I ran to the White House and went in. "Wow!" I said when I got in. I had the maid bring in my bags. "This is the good life," I thought.

I went to my office upstairs. “Wow,” I said. A voice behind me said, “Amazing isn’t it?” I turned around and before my eyes was President Obama! “Wow, this day could not get any better?” I said.” It just might!” said Obama. “This is Karl, AKA I will beat you up if you threaten the President - Your personal bodyguard for the day,” said the President. “Ah! Good one,” I said “Well time for you to take over,” said President Obama. “I’ll see you tomorrow.” Wow! This is so cool! I wonder what we should do first. I should probably take this chance to put Ava’s Law into action. Hmmm. I decided to write my Bill. Ava’s Law will make insurance companies cover autism treatment. I made sure to put in the details like ABA therapy, speech and occupational therapy. I also made sure that it covered biomedical treatments like M-B-12 shots. I went to the Senate and proposed my bill. I told my story about how I had autism and recovered and how I think that other children with autism deserve a chance, too. This bill will give children with autism a chance at recovery.

A few hours later, the Senate and the House passed my bill! I couldn’t believe it! I finally did it. When I got back to the White House, it was almost 10 o’clock, and I went to bed satisfied. When I woke up, I got dressed and went out and had breakfast. Overall, I think I did a pretty good job as President. Five minutes and I was going to resign and shake hands with Obama. I finished my breakfast and went up. I walked up and shook hands. “You did a great job, son,” said President Obama. "Thanks, I will see you sometime,” I said. When I got home I kind of missed the White House, but beggars can’t be choosers.
