Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
We people on the pavement looked at him:
He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
Clean favored, and imperially slim.
And he was always quietly arrayed,
And he was always human when he talked;
But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
“Good-morning,” and he glittered when he walked.
And he was rich—yes, richer than a king—
And admirably schooled in every grace:
In fine, we thought that he was everything
To make us wish that we were in his place.
So on we worked, and waited for the light,
And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;
And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
Went home and put a bullet through his head.

He might have killed himself because looks can be deceiving or money can’t buy happiness which could also be themes for the poem. So maybe everyone thought he was happy and thought since he was “richer than a king” that he had everything, but maybe he didn’t have what he most desired in life.
My name is Sara, my birthday is in December. I was born in Longview, my parents are divorced. My brothers are all way older than me.I was adopted when i was adopted when i was a couple weeks old.
I am interested in money and the color orange. My hobby is sitting on the couch and watching T.V. Horses are my all time favorite animals,because they’re so big and pretty.
My expectations for this school year are getting good grades, having fun and enjoying the school year,and being with my friends.
Seeing my family is a gift that I would always like to keep just like swimming,riding my bike,and lots of simple things. I would like to always keep doing the things that I love to do. I don’t know what I would do without my sight? If I lost my sight I wouldn’t be able to see my family, swim,ride my bike,and do the things that I love to do. I would always like seeing,running,and playing with my friends. If I lost my sight the worst part , I think, is I wouldn’t be able to see when people where making faces at me. That is why I never won’t to lose my sight.
Doggies are so many different colors,
you were brown
all I need is you around
when I first saw you I turned around,
told my mom that you were the
Doggie in town.
Jews Escape From Nazis By: Sara & Jessica
Earlier this week the Jews were escaping from the Nazis that were taking them to all sorts of camps. Scared to death of the Nazis and their dogs, the Jews were hidden in tiny, cramped compartments to get across Oresund to get to Sweden. The Jews are very grateful for a new invention, a handkerchief.
But not just any handkerchief, a crafty handkerchief coated in rabbits blood, and cocaine. This creation was designed to attract the dogs with the rabbits blood, and make the dogs lose their sense of smell temporarily. The Nazis have been relocating the Jews, however some Jews have been brave enough to stand up to the Nazi soldiers. Unfortunately those who have been housing or hiding the Jews have been executed. This needs to be stopped, and others have tried, however those who have, haven’t lived.
When we interviewed Hitler he said that Jews were “selfish, and mean people that don’t know what they’re doing at all.” However, we do not agree with this. We interviewed a bystander who saw a Jew slain in the streets by a Nazi soldier who was standing on the street corner. The body was later dragged to a death camp and burned. Many people were astonished by the soldier’s cold, spiritless face.
This Nazi soldier was completely unbothered by the fact that he had just murdered this innocent Jew. Many people have been following Hitler, and letting him influence them, therefore there are a lot of people involved in the Nazi party. The yellow stars that the Nazis made the Jews wear, we truthfully believe, were degrading. Hitler thought that the rest of the world was completely ungrateful about what he had done for them. The Jews thought that Hitler was a mean, idiotic person, who had no talent for art.The German soldiers were heartless people, that didn’t care about the Jews at all. When we interviewed Hitler he also stated that he was very angered that most of the Jews they were trying to relocate were escaping to free countries. Hitler also stated that in 1940 he plans to take over Denmark. Those who have family there need to send word, so that maybe your family won’t be murdered by German soldiers, and that concludes our daily article over Jews escaping the Holocaust.
Well I was suppose to go see my brother in Comanche ,but my mom had to have surgery , she had her gallbladder taken out and so I didn’t get to go .My mom couldn’t pick up any thing over 5 pounds.So all I did was sit around and watch TV, ALL DAY LONG,ALL WEEK LONG,untill she needed help (witch she didn’t really). But that is my most memorable moment.
As we stand there screaming and shouting our favorite band plays really loud we are so happy our parents finally brought us. Me and my little sister Phoebe love concerts but we rarely ever get to come to them. I turned around for 2 seconds OH NO wheres Phoebe with yellow smoke filling the air I can’t see so I called her name many times, I finally hear her say where are you I got lost in the crowd I was scared.Phoebe I’m so glad I found you!!!
