When you ask children what they want to be when they grow up, you will hear fantastic, limitless dreams. They want to be professional athletes, the President of the United States, a doctor, a teacher, a police officer, an astronaut, a zoo keeper, a veterinarian, and maybe even a firefighter. Regardless of what they dream of being, they are focused on the positives of that job and the endless possibilities lying before them.
