It’s not a glamorous job, but it takes a brave person to be involved in a S.W.A.T. team. Just over 70% of victims at Jackson Memorial Hospital Miami are treated for gun wounds.

They have two armoured trucks and one truck isn’t that armoured—it’s used for warrants or other dispatch calls. Continue reading

“I’m Julian. I love writing! I live with my mom, a dog and two cats. Try writing the ending to my short story I call, The South River School.” Julian, Age 12
I was the new kid at school and I didn’t like it. Mom said I would make friends easily but… there was something wrong with the school here. The school is fenced in for some reason and the teachers were so weird. Something was wrong I could feel it. On my first day, I met Alex and he was my only friend in that school.
I am to freaked out to talk about Day 2-6. Sorry.
It was any other day at the weirdest school in the world. I was late and the room was dead silent. “Sorry, I’m late Mr Kean.” Said a mysterious voice in the front of the room. I looked up to see a girl. Continue reading
“I’ve created this editorial because I feel it is an important cause. I hope you feel it is as important as I do.” Faye, Age 11
Can you imagine a simple dress being like the ball gown you’ve wanted for your whole life? Dress a Girl Around The World is a nonprofit organization that asks people to make dresses for young girls in less fortunate countries. This is an important cause because every girl deserves to feel beautiful. Also, most young girls in these countries have dresses made out of old, ripped, and stretched rags. It is amazing to create a dress while picturing a smile on someone else’s face. If you make a dress, be sure to use cotton, as most people wash clothes in a stream with rocks. Continue reading

“I am a massive fan of a popular TV series, and the minute I found out we were writing a short story, I knew what I wanted to write! My aunt is an ER (emergency medicine) physician, and I’ve been around that kind of stuff most of my life! I did some research on some surgeries and things like that, but for the most part, I did this with the ideas that popped into my head! I want to be a surgeon one day, but I also love to write, so I put the two together and that is how this story was created!”

“I want to be the best!”
This is a phrase many people at the top of their field say, including Dr Addison Griffin, a general surgeon at Lakeway Regional Medical Center. She and her best friend, cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr Laurie Rodriguez, aspire to be the best at what they do. Not just in their fields, but the best in their profession. Their lives consist of 36-hour shifts, lots of blood, and trying to save every single person’s life that walks into the hospital. Surgery is what they live, love, and breathe. It gives purpose to their lives—even through all the struggles and complaints. Continue reading
