Which sentences are correct out of the following choices?

Don't forget: the pronoun, I, is the subject of a verb. the pronoun, me, is the object of a verb and object of a preposition.
In an effort to be "proper", the pronoun, I, is used over and over as a preposition object - by well meaning people. Just felt a responsibility to use my blog post to correct that if anyone cares to be corrected.
You know how the majority of "Hollywood" has taken our political climate into their own hands, deeming themselves saviors of our world? Well, I hear, even on television and in movies, their misuse of those two pronouns. It makes me think they were absent the day that lesson was taught in English.
It makes me think the lesson isn't even being taught in English anymore.
In fact, sad as it is, it would seem that the English language is becoming an offense to the world - correct English, that is. Correct English is beautiful - as is any language. I wish I knew more languages. But, alas, English is mine - with a strong Southern accent. Strong South Alabama - wish I could improve that dialect just a bit.
Answers to the above quiz:
Will you go with Sarah and me?
Sarah and I will go.
Thank you for thinking of Charlie and me.
The two selected are Sarah and I.
Who and Whom are also misused. Well, mostly whom. It's slowly being eliminated - the word, whom. But Who is a subject in a sentence. Whom is an object. But I looked up all of this to make sure I was saying all of this correctly and I read that the word whom is becoming obsolete and even the most astute English experts are having to concede.
What a different post this is.
Any comments on the pronouns, I and me? Have you ever thought about it?
