Acrostic

Colors

Children find there favorites
Others than what is in the rainbow 
Loving every single one
Open for all to chose 
Realizing what they mean
Savoring them when you see them in the world

Name Poem

Samantha
It means smart, listener, creative
It is the number 14
It is calm, cool, like a river
It is singing to your favorite song with your friends
It is the memory of Wesly
Who taught me valor and strength
When he continues through a hard time
My name is Samantha
It means trusting God all the time.

Motivator Poster




     Friendship is very important to me. In the movie “Blindsight”, friendship is shown when Tashi  and Tenzin open the only blind massage clinic together in Tibet. It is also shown in the ways of the guides. The guides helped the kids in a way that is like a friend by guiding them up and back down Mt. Everest. Friendship relates to my life because my friends helped make me who I am today. They taught me many things and I helped them in return. My friends are very kind and I don’t know what I would do without my friends in my life.

American Freedom

American Freedom
     Did you know that 5.3 billion people face harsh religious freedom restrictions? There are also over 15 countries that have restrictions on religion. This is extremely sad. I am an American who has the freedom to attend the church of my choice. People often forget what freedom means, how they are free, and what others have said about freedom.
     Freedom is what allows me to be here to day. It does not mean you can do what ever you want.  According to the New Oxford American Dictionary freedom means having the power to act, speak, or think as one wants without restraint. Life has many restrictions, some are hard to remember but, others are for your own safety. I want all people to be free but there are always consequences to your actions. 
     I am free today because of the soldiers that fought and are fighting for us today. I have freedom in many different areas.  I have religious freedom which gives me the right to practice whatever religion I choose. I also have the freedom of speech which  gives me the right to express any opinions without censorship.
     America is the of image freedom. In the words of James A Garfield “For the love of their country, they accepted death.” This means that the soldiers that fought for their country, loved it so much that they died. In the words of Malcolm X “Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you are a man, you take it.” In the words of Thomas Campbell “The patriot’s blood is the seed of Freedom’s tree.” All of these quotes reminded us that Freedom is not free!

     
     In conclusion, I hope you remember these three things: what freedom is, that you are free and there are many quotes that describe freedom. Remember when you leave your house someone else might not have the freedom you have. Make sure you thank a service member for their sacrifice when you see them. I hope you remember why you are free because of the veterans that lost their life for you.
