I think Nikol Pashinyan should get the medal because about two years ago, he started from nothing and he worked so hard and the people in Armenian thought he was a great person so they voted him and he got to the top by being elected prime minister.

So it says, President John F. Kennedy established the Presidential medal of freedom, But he died and he did not see the first medals, but then president lyndon johnson awarded more than 30 medals, I think Dred Scott should get it even if he is dead he fighted for every slave to be free, he was fighting for more than 6 years! i really think he should get it.

Hi, it’s Martin. A person I think deserves a presidential medal of freedom or a purple heart is my great-grandfather, who is sadly dead. I think he deserves it because he fought in both the first and second world war and didn’t die in either, he was also very brave and kind and was never considered a traitor by any of his fellow soldiers. In conclusion, my great-grandfather was a brave man who definatly deserves a purple heart

Personally I think that I should get the presidential award, but if it was two people I would choose my parents. My parents should get the award, because they care for me, they love me, they feed me and much more. But as I said one person so me. I would choose me, because I am responsible, I care others as well as myself and I don’t hurt others. Those are the reasons I should get the presidential award.
