Poem By Shauna Stoltz

People forget all about
the troops that go and fight
for our freedom to do
what we do everyday

the troops that if
it weren't for their bravery
we wouldn't have had
all the things we do now

so even though
this war isn't over here
we forget all about them
the troops need us now

they put themselves
on the line for us
everyday is a challenge
to see who can survive

many of them die
defending our rights
but we forget about it
and we shouldn't

we tend to neglect
all that they do for us
all that they put on the line
the troops of the US

so stand with me
as they raise the flag
for everyone who died
since September 11

don't forget
all the troops around us
they need us to help
with this war in Iraq

I'm not asking you to join
just say a blessing or two
even if you don't believe
please do it for them

the troops pray for us
instead of themselves
so why can't we do the same
instead of being so selfish

they put their country
above everything else
so why can't just this once
we put them above us

stop thinking about
what we should do
and get up and actually
do something about it

get up like they did for us
and show the troops
that they'll never be forgotten
and that they are American heroes

let the troops know
how you really feel
and think about
what all they do for us

they don't get any
praises or thanks
except from their families
and friends sometimes to

so tell a troop
next time you see one
that you are great full
for all they do to serve us

Mrs. Morman

You may just be a teacher
but to me you're much more
you're someone I can talk to,
look up to, and adore

Missing Child

I get off the bus
everyday after school
and when I look around
I see the same guy

That's My School

Up at my school
everyone is different
yet we are treated
like an equal

Hand In Hand

With all that's happened
to us this year
and with all that's happened
for us to shed a tear


sitting on the couch
with your arms around me
a million things
running through my mind

Last Day Of School

It's the last day of school
everyone running for the door
'what do we do? '
they think feet hitting the floor
