Q. President's Day was Monday, Feb. 19. Who is your favorite president and why?

Abraham Lincoln is my favorite president. I've always loved learning about him in school. His accomplishments, nobility, and leadership are just a few of the reasons why.

Q. Another month, another mass killing at a school. What specific thing would you like to do to help keep kids safe?

I would love to see veterans at the door, armed and protecting our children. If veterans, possibly ones who are struggling in shelter or employment, were given the opportunity to create harder access into the schools, I believe it would dramatically increase the safety.

Q. Have you ever owned a pet that is not a dog or cat?

I've had a few fish over the years, but the one I remember most is a turtle. My cousin and I found it, it was injured and we nursed it back to health before letting it go.

Q. How much of the Olympics have you watched the last two weeks, and what is your favorite event?

I haven't had the chance to watch much of it this year but I always love watching the figure skating.

Q. With the recent taste of spring-like weather, how much cleaning or organizing did you get done?

I've cleaned the house a couple times, but with two kids it doesn't last long. I am excited for the weather to stick around!
