Name Poem

Mikyla
It means smart, courageous, kind
It is the number 25
It is chilling, mysterious, icy, frigid
It is swimming in the lake
It is the memory of my mom, Dawn
Who taught me respect and patience
When she is being my mom
My name is Mikyla

It means standing up for what I believe in

Blindness

Blindness 
Just because your lose your sight doesn’t mean you can’t do great things. Just like in the movie Blindsight all of the kids were blind yet that didn’t stop them from climbing a mountain. 


Blindness has to do a lot with every day life to because you may not be able to see the bright sight of things so in that way you might be blind, but it doesn’t stop you from doing something amazing. So just like the kids in the movie don't let blindness get you down.

Freedom


Freedom
Have you ever wondered what freedom means? To some people freedom is the symbols it presents, the connections they feel, and some of the phrases people use to represent freedom.

Freedom is not free it demands to be fought for, with fighting comes pain, with pain comes grieving, but America has stood through the pain for a very long time. The rainbow can not come without the rain. Hope has been a major part in the fight for our freedom. It shines throughout the darkest of times. When the battle is going on and everything looks lost as long as there is that ray of hope nothing is impossible.

Some of the symbols of liberty are the flag, the soldiers fighting for us, and the eagle. The stars on the flag stands for each state of the U.S. The blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice.The red stripes mean hardiness and valor. The white strips stand for purity and innocence.  The bald eagle, our national emblem represents freedom. An eagle is  displayed as the symbol of supreme power and authority. The soldiers stand for our deliverance because of the mighty sacrifice the have made. Working themselves till there are mentally and physically exhausted. Then they go out and lose their friends or even their own lives.  

Freedom to me means a lot because my uncle fought in the marines. When he came back he had some sickness then he died. It also means a lot because many more of my family has fought as well, but my uncle is the one I remember the most. Most of all freedom means a lot to me because it makes me feel safe. Freedom makes me comfortable knowing that I can speak whatever I want, and I can vote when I get older.

Now you know how freedom may mean many different things to different people like personal connections, words or phrases, and the symbols. Our country has survived for over 200 years because of the freedoms we have.
