The hot summer sun beats down on me
My teammate on third just stole home
Another run for the Shamrocks
Smells of dirt lingered the air
As she slid in
I look at the batting order
Im up next. #24
I step up to the plate
All I can see is the pitcher
And the ball
I grip the bat hard
Fury is the only thing I feel
I can even taste it
Love is an indescribable feeling
A feeling that can’t ever be replaced
By others that can’t portray it
Isn’t what you think
It can be hard
But the best love
Is showed by the people
Who actually are there for you
They never lose faith
in your love
Love is Patient, Love is Kind
God knows where to take you
He’s going to guide you
To a love that will never
Sometimes the Lord
Takes you to your love
at an early age
or even an old one
That does not matter
Is that he gets you there
He will get you to a love
That will be
A love that will love you
At your darkest
And at your strongest
Love is a feeling
That not even the best of people

It means unique, obstinate, caring
It is the number 24
It is like the dark stormy sky
It is like riding four-wheelers
It is the memory of my grandma Suzanne Schrunk
Who taught me to love one another and smile no matter what
When she always smiles and talks with everyone
My name is Makenna
It means that I will never let anyone get in my way of doing what makes me happy

This quote relates to the movie “Blind Sight” in many ways. In the movie, the kids that had gone blind never gave up on their dreams. The kids climbed Mt. Everest. But in life they never gave up on accomplishing goals like making something of themselves. For example, Toshi went and started the biggest massage place in his city that also serves cold drinks. The quote relates to my life because it is telling me never to give up on goals I make and to never let anyone take me down. This quote is saying to never let go of your dreams.

America is different from many countries. You will find one thing in the United States of
America that you will never find anywhere else. Freedom. Freedom is important to us Americans and it is shown by soldiers, sacrifice, and in World War II.
Our soldiers represent our freedom. They fight and put their lives in jeopardy just so we can be free. They are the reason we can go to church where we want and choose where we go to school. There are five branches of military. There is the Navy, Army, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. The National Guard is apart of the Army branch.
Sacrifice. Soldiers sacrifice themselves everyday. Today, men and woman are over seas fighting terrorists like Isis. That takes a lot of sacrifice and bravery. Each and every American fighter is taking a risk. Not knowing if they will be able to come back home alive. We cannot thank a soldier enough for taking that risk.
On November 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. America had no choice. We were going into World War II. Soldiers left their families and went off to fight. We lost close to 25 million soldiers. Freedom doesn't come free. Those soldiers paid the price for our freedom. They saw it all. From the suffering adults and children in Auschwitz, a concentration camp ran by the Nazis, to just watching fellow friends and possibly family get shot. The physical wounds were painful and brutal, but the mental wounds were the hardest to heal. We won the war and we redeemed our freedom.
May God bless the soldiers that have fought for our country. Whether they fought in WWII, Vietnam, Korea, or are now fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. We can never thank them enough for their service. We are blessed to have people in this country that would sacrifice themselves just so we can have the one thing most other countries don't have. Freedom.

Have you ever heard or seen of a ghost that chases soles with Louisville Sluggers and throws softballs at them? Well, at OHS you will find a ghost that does just that! The ghost is called the Black Fury. No one knows exactly why. Legend has it that he has three souls captured in the floors of the school. People say that is why you can hear screaming and crying in the hallways at volleyball games, basketball games and just when your alone in the halls.
The Black Fury is not much to look at. He’s about ten feet tall. Thats as high as a basketball rim. All the Black Fury is is a black puff of fog. His eyes are red beams that can blind you in half a second. That is why you don’t look into his eyes or he will take your sole when you die. Then he will put it with the others under the old school floors.
When you first move to OHS, you will here the story of Black Fury. Theres nothing else that will send chills up your spine than to listen to the horrifying screams of the unknown three. Once you hear the outbursts once, you will never get them out of your head.
I’ve only seen this Black Fury once. When I saw him he had 32 inch Louisville Slugger and a bucket of balls. He never harmed me because I never harmed him. That was the first and last time I ever saw him.

Not one word came out of my mouth as we entered the festivities. Many wizards were mingling among one another. I just stood there, looking at the flickering jack o’ lanterns, artificial cob webs, and the rickety skeletons scattered around the room. All of a sudden felt a tap on shoulder. It was Harry. That was the signal it was time to sit and the massive feast would begin.
As we all sat down, the main course started appearing. Pot roast, prime rib, chicken, biscuits and gravy, the whole nine yards! The food kept piling and my mouth kept watering. I couldn't decide where to start. I started my journey in the jungle of food with the pot roast. I had never ate a pot roast so… so… delicious! Next, I dug into the creamy mash potatoes. Then, to the warm, fresh baked bread topped with butter. Now onward to the chicken and noodles. It taste just like grandma makes it. Thick homemade noodles with the finest chicken you can get! I kept shoving the food down my throat till I couldn't no more. As I sat back, my belly bulged out. I would never be able to eat a crumb of food again! But you think that would stop me from eating more? No way!
Oh no! The food started disappearing. But that meant one thing. Dessert! The cookies and cakes started piling. Ooey, gooey cinnamon rolls, fresh pumpkin pie, creamy birthday cake ice-cream, my favorites! I stuffed and stuffed my self full of the delicious sweets. The desserts finally started to disappear. Thank goodness they did! If I would of ate anymore, I would of burst! That was the best feast I have ever ate!
Now, as the feast concluded, the games were going to begin. Harry entered me in the pumpkin guts war. I was not pleased with that! So I entered him in the goat milk drinking contest. I like to call that payback.
The pumpkin guts war started and it was easier than I thought. Our team was awesome. what you do is you have to first cut open a pumpkin. Then you take your hands and dig into the pumpkin, pulling out sloshes of gunk. And to conclude, you have to throw the slop at the other House hoping they would serenader. If no one ever does, then the team mostly covered in pumpkin guts loses. So, if you ask me I think its completely awesome! Not the answer you were looking for huh? I know, its gross in some peoples minds.
Even though this was my first Halloween Feast at Hogwarts, I have to say, it was the best feast yet! I hope I don't get expelled or turned into something horrific before next years feast. But I'm pretty sure none of that would happen.

I have never ever in my entire life heard of Dot Day. I haven't even heard of the book! But today in English I learned what it is. Dot Day isn't just an ordinary day, its a special day. Its a day to let your creativity flow. Everybody has creativity in them, even if they don't think so. Happy Dot Day:)
