BEING GRATEFUL...


In light of the approaching holiday, Ms. Lees' class did a writing piece about being thankful.  Below is the an excerpt from the writing piece of D'Jenane Celestin, a student in her class about the things for which she is grateful:

There are many things that I am thankful for.  I am thankful for my home.  Every day when I come home, I look at the outside of the house and think, "Is this house eer going to change?"  Well every time I hear the news, it seems that people die or I see people in the city sitting around and suffering.  Or maybe people have the swine flu.  Then I say, I should be a little more considerate because I"m lucky not to be out there in the cold, in a shelter, or sitting on a dirty ground.  My house feels cozier than any other house...  Also, I'm thankful for everything that the US Government is doing for us.  Those are the things I love being thankful for!
