Dress a Girl

“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

Blake’s Situation #4

Situation: Glad to see everybody here! I’m Blake and if you’re new, this is where we talk about what to do in different situations. It’s a lot of fun, and can be very helpful. Often things happen very quickly and we don’t have a lot of time to think. My pages are to help you be prepared to know what to do. What would you do if you were standing alone at a bus stop or a street corner, and a stranger pulled up in a vehicle. They motion to you that they want to speak to you or start being friendly towards you. What would be the right choice or the wrong choice, and why? Continue reading

Memories of Scratchy

by TeLeni Koochin

I knew I always wanted to be a mom. Growing up in a family with seven children, I never saw life complete any other way. Even being a parent this long, I can still feel sometimes like I’m just playing  house— especially when I hear the clothes dryer going, the lawn mover humming outside, or the smell of mop water as I’m cleaning floors.

Don’t Walk!

by Tania Staniscia

One day a friend and I stayed after school to help our teacher tidy the classroom. When we finished wiping the chalkboard, I told my friend I would walk home with her even though it wasn’t my usual route.

My mom cautioned me never to walk the direction my friend lived, because it was a high traffic area. Despite her warning, I ignored Mom’s advice. Continue reading

After dinner I decided to walk back to my grandparents’ condo with my two year old son, Daniel, to enjoy some cool fresh air and the clear starlit sky. I knew the area fairly well, but though I was confident with my directions, before long we were lost. Continue reading

Little Ozzy

My name is Raquel and this is our dog, Ozzy. He is a Yorkshire Terrier. We got him when he was 10 weeks old and now he is five months. Both his dad and brother live on our block. Before we got Ozzy we had a fish, hamster and a few frogs. When we heard that Ozzy’s mom had puppies, we asked if we could go see them. We weren’t expecting to buy one. Continue reading

Nanny’s Flowers

by Karen R. Clarke

My daughter, Kathryn, discovered that her first pregnancy was twin girls. She asked me to come and live with them. Once Kendra and Kaylee were 3 years old, I decided it was time to live on my own again. I rented an apartment approximately a 10-minute drive from their home. The girls made their first visit to my new abode the day the gardeners had planted a beautiful flower bed in front of the building. Continue reading
