Pailee

Pailee is an unordinary cat
Always biting and scratching
Inside the house is the only place she will stay
Loves to sleep on the couch all day
Eats anything and everything she finds

Everyday she does something to make my mom mad

Name Poem

Makenna
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

Blindsight Motivator Poster


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.

Freedom

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.
