  • It’s great that president Barrack Obama is going to El Salvador! El Salvador need cheering up and a lot of work. Even though the war might have made it horrible it has beautiful places beaches, and churches if you go to the right places! All those who think the president shouldn’t go to El Salvador check out El Salvador and you will change your mind the president made a good choice and it’s the right choice! This country needs it!
