“It’s easier to build strong children than to fix broken (adults).” — Frederick Douglass

The Key West Weekly is proud to present Kids Weekly, where we feature middle school kids from Key West and the Lower Keys, giving them a voice and printing their answers to fun questions.

Instead of asking about their teacher or their favorite school subject, we want to know the important stuff: what superpower they would most like to have, their favorite YouTube channels, what makes them laugh, and the hardest part of being a child today.

To have your school’s fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth graders included, please email Key West Editor Mandy Miles at [email protected] for the questionnaire and instructions for photo submissions.

Special thanks to Sigsbee Charter School student Jack Mitchell and teacher Jessica Forsyth for helping us put together the new Kids Weekly feature.

What superpower would you most like to have, and why? Invisibility because I can sneak in and eavesdrop on conversations.

If you could make one rule for the whole world to follow, what would it be? Be peaceful.

The hardest part of being a kid is… attend school and do things according to your parents’ schedule.

The hardest part of being an adult has to be… track bills and pay bills.

When I grow up, I want… be successful.
