"I feel that a hero is somebody who will stand up for their values and what they believe in and that can take any form. People that have values and have thought them through rather than those who just do what they’re told."-Skandar Keynes

"When it’

I am alive
I may not walk and talk
I may not be able to dance or sing
But perhaps
Just perhaps, I could be
The next Elvis Presley
Or Julie Andrews

I am alive
I may not look like much
Just a blob of protoplasm
Hidden in your womb
But I am a person

I have dreams
Dreams of creating a flying car
Dreams of saving a life
Dreams of making a difference in someone's life

Who are you to tell me
Whether I should have the chance to live
Or die?

I am a person
Not a dog
In fact a dog, an animal, is given more rights than me
Your very own child
How could you be so selfish as to deny me life?

I am alive
I am a person
I have dreams

I am the one who will cure breast cancer
I will end segregation
The segregation still alive in our country
I am the next Abraham Lincoln
Would you really wish the next American great
To never be born?

Think about me
I am not your body
I am my own body
I am a person separate from you
I am not the same as a pimple
Or a wart

I have a beating heart
I have a mind
I understand what you are thinking
More than you know

I may be a fetus
But I am also a human
And I wish to live
Grant me my wish.

Sincerely yours,

A child that may never be
