North Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Great words of wisdom can sometimes come from the youngest voices.
Monday night on the House floor, Nevada Representative Steven Horsford read several letters from students at Sandy Miller Elementary School in North Las Vegas.
They said their class trip to Grand Canyon National Park is in jeopardy because of the government shutdown.
So, they offered words of advice for Congress.
Stephanie wrote, "You should be respectful of each other, be communicators."
"You should be reflective about how you are affecting other people, not just yourself," said Rossi.
Belen said in her note, "If fifth graders can get along, you can too."
Horsford said if Congress can't work together, maybe the gavel should be turned over to those students.
