Dear residents of Yangon,

I am one of the seventh graders from Yangon.  I am writing this letter on behalf of children in Yangon and I would like to draw your kind attention to request the City Councillor to build a new wide sports center or football field with mini playground in each town for children and teenagers in our city Yangon.  I guarantee that it will benefit the kids and teenagers in Yangon by giving them a healthy daily life by doing sports.  Many of the students in my school agreed with me for this idea.  Besides, we would also be appreciated to get acknowledgement from you, the residents of Yangon for this change.

One of the main reasons why we need a sports center is that there are not many places for children to do proper exercises and sports to keep themselves fit and healthy.  Nowadays most of the kids are addicted to games and reluctant to work out.  This is the main reason that many youngsters nowadays have very low resistance and I can see most of them have to wear glasses having lack of vitamins.

Some people say that children don't really need a sport center to be healthy.  They think the children can do exercises easily at home.  I can't say it's wrong but it would be better to have fun or to socialize within the community if the children gather up there and try the best to be good at sports.  I am aware of the fact that building a sports center is very expensive but if you think about children having occupied with loads of lessons to study by heart and the children playing football in the streets facing the danger from reckless drivers of the vehicles, it is a worth for all of us get lots of benefit from doing sports in a safe place.  Some people might want you to build large buildings like shopping malls or supermarket but there are already lots of them in our city.  In fact, there's no space for us to do sports such as cycling, skating, table tennis and badminton.  Once I was playing badminton and a car almost hit me.  I was very lucky that day. 

All in all, I believe you will all agree with me for this change in support of my petition for the sake of the children in Yangon.  Thank you for your time.
