Boy, 10, Pens Letter to the President, Asking to Mow the White House Lawn: 'It Would Be My Honor'
"Even though I'm only 10, I would like to show the nation what young people are ready for," Frank wrote in a letter to the White House.
Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.
That seemed to be this 10-year-old boy's motto after he wrote a letter to President Trump, asking whether he could mow the White House lawn.
“It would be my honor to mow the White House lawn some weekend for you. Even though I’m only 10, I would like to show the nation what young people are ready for,” Frank, 10, of Falls Church, Va., wrote in a letter shared by the White House press office.
He continues to explain that he has been mowing his neighbors’ lawn, and has a variety of equipment he could bring, including a power mower, push mower and weed whacker.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shared the touching letter with members of the media Wednesday.
“Frank, I’m happy to report back to you that I just spoke to the president,” Huckabee Sanders said. “He wanted me to be sure to tell you that you’re doing a great job and to keep working hard.”
She said the president has invited him to take a tour with the groundskeepers, where he would learn what it takes to maintain 18-acres of park and even have an opportunity to tend to the Rose Garden and mow the lawn.
“[Frank] embodies the enterprising and ambitious spirit of America,” Huckabee Sanders added.
