Dear President Clinton:

I think you should try to save our rainforest for these four reasons: The rainforest provides most of our air. Number two, more than 50% of all animals live in the rainforest. Most of our medicine comes from the rainforest, number three. Last, but not least, If rainforest is destroyed, we will know nothing of it anymore.

Sincerely,

Nicholas

Dear President Clinton:

I am a 9 year old third grade student and I am worried about the rainforest.One reason is because most of the animals and plants live there. Another reason is because it provides most of our air. If we let people burn down the rainforests we might die because we won't have enough air.The last reason is Natives will lose their homes because we aren't spreading the message on to everyone.So,will you do me a favor and help me spread the message on to everybody?

Sincerely,

Christine

Dear President Clinton:

I am a concerned third grade student from Braceville Elementary school and I am asking you to help try to save the RAINFOREST for many reasons. First, the rainforest provides most of the world's air supply. All people need air to survive. Next, a lot of medicines come from the rainforest and because of the destruction of the rainforest a lot of undiscovered medicines are being destroyed. Also, many wonderful creatures are becoming endangered and even extinct. Finally, lots and lots of plants are being destroyed. As you can see this is why you should try to save the rainforest.

Sincerely,

Ashley
