              Incident Poem

I sat on the park bench

Waiting for my best friend
When I saw that evil wench
I did not know I was close to the end

She walked up to me with greed in her eyes
And said “gimmie your ice cream”
Or will my ice cream meet its demise
Then she snatched and made me cry

I was only three
And ice cream isn’t free
And she smiled with glee
So I kicked in the knee

So she told on me
My punishment to write this poem to thee

poverty and water

            In countries all around the world families and entire towns suffer do to poverty. Food and water supply is difficult to find. Many of the water they do find is dirty and polluted. Many people when thinking of this think of small children in Africa or in Haiti. Yes there is a lot of this happening there but places like Turkey and Ukraine, India, and many other places.
Just the poverty alone causes damage to any person child or adult. You cannot by food or clothing. The children’s parents cannot afford an education for their children. Their only transportation is walking or horse back they cannot afford to buy even a bicycle.
            As for the water the people in poverty usually don’t have clean water to drink. And if they drink the dirty water and get very ill. They can get diseases and those diseases may cause death.

global warming

Global warming is an issue that not many people are taking it to seriously. Many people believe that global warming is a myth, an urban legend like big foot or the loch ness monster. But it is true, scientist have proven that it is happening and at a fast pace.

Scientist have also proven that most of it is due to human pollution according to the IPCC. It is true that the earth many times before heated up and cooled down (experienced climate change), but not such as fast as this one. It usually takes a couple centuries, but this one is taking only 1 century or less.

The place feeling the heat of global warming is the Artic (Alaska, parts of Canada, and eastern Russia), glaciers are melting, native tribes and polar bears are losing homes.

Not just land is suffering the climate change, the ocean is suffering greatly. Many of the ocean’s wild life and coral reefs diminishing. Coral reefs die in the slightest change of temperature. There are also fish that are extremely sensitive to climate change

Bridge to Terabithia (lets take the tunnel)

Bridge to Terabithia. Just the name is magical. You have to take a bridge to go somewhere unrealistic, so similar to the real world. Because even in fantasy there are always similarities to the real world. You are always on the move using bridges to keep on moving. If you do you will get to the place you want to get to.
          The things said above are just a few things that Ive learned from Bridge to Terabithia. Thats what I appreciate from Bridge to Terabithia, no matter what kind of book that you are reading there always things to learn and things to resolve. One thing that needs to be resolved in Bridge to Terabithia is Jesss relationship with his father. His father is never around always at work never spending time with his children. When thing that shows how Jesss father is unsupportive and not exactly best father of the year is when Jess as a young boy showed his father a painting he made in school. Im sure that any other father would have said Good job son, but like the man he is he starts getting angry about the teachers for turning his son into a ____. Yes since Bridge to Terabithia is a childrens book Katherine Patterson did not write the last word she leaves it to the imagination of the reader.
All that I wrote above made start to think that maybe that is why Jess is so eager to enter Terabithia but still a little cautious. I always believe that this is due to his father being so distant and not always so intergraded in his childrens life. I feel that if I were Jess I would feel the same. Maybe this new concept is cool but will father approve. Jess is not the only kid with out problems; I think that Leslie also has problems only Patterson did not go into dept.
I bet that many people reading for the eighth grade assignment thought the book they were reading would be as shallow as a kiddie pool, but just like the ocean the deeper you go the more you find along the way. The ocean has no end just like your interpretations.

       Bridge to Teribithia one of many national childhood favorites. It was made into a movie in 2008 amd that was the last we heard of the magical in the woods. But now i am ready to bring the classic back to life. And to acomplish such a feat that imust explain Jess's life. Jess's family wasn't the richest family on the block. He never had the best toys never really was that popular and wasn't exacly the best student thatt walked the earth, but he did dreams like every other child he had ambitions.
        Now on Leslies life back round info wasn't that easy to understand but if you payed close attention you would notice she is the complete oppisite than Jesse no siblings, midlle class family (richer han Jesse) she was even the fastest runner in the fifth grade. she was eveything Jess wanted to be and yet she needed to use her imagination to satisfy her.
       I belive that Jess goes to Terabithia to escape his problems like an un-supportive father and am mother who just shrugs everything off and now I believe Leslie goes to the magical place just to have fun and to make up being an only child.
       Adults may never know what we kids suffer.
