August 2013 – Reader Contribution

THANKFUL

Sometimes the little things in life that we take for granted are forgotten. I wrote this poem about things in life that I’m thankful for.

Terrific food from restaurants.

Houses like mine that keep us warm, dry, and together.

Always reading books as they give us knowledge and pleasure.

Newspapers and other types of communication that keep me informed about the world.

Kind teachers like Mrs. Biello who doesn’t make you do a lot of homework.

Friends such as Bryan, Ian, Ryan, that let me play with them.

Understanding topics at school along with learning new information.

Lives such as mine which gives us a chance to make a mark in history.
