Farewell

A decision: enlistments, papers and contracts are signed.
Once a childish super hero will now become a hero for our country.
Departure day arrives, and tears are shed as goodbyes are made.
My soldier’s first farewell.

It’s letter day… Things are tough, and there is a constant ringing of gunshot through the air. The sight of his comrades, wounded and dying hurts his heart, but he will press on.
He is being moved to a new area, and will say goodbye to the land he knew.
My soldier’s second farewell.

Two men arrive in full uniform with faces worn and grim.
My boy is gone to heaven to wait for us there.
Today he came home, and tears were shed as goodbyes were made.
My soldier’s last farewell.

If you were offered a free trip to the moon, would you go? Why or why not?

If I was offered a free trip to the moon… you wouldn’t have to ask me twice. It has been my lifelong DREAM to venture into outer space to see the great vast openness and to be an astronaut. And it would be so neat to stand on the moon. Think about it, guys- THE MOON. Wow. Plus, how fabulous would it be to have total weightlessness in space? Answer: mucho fabuloso. And the moon is cool and bouncy, so you can count me in.

waiting…

Fifteen. It seems like such a magical age… for some, it’s their Quinceanera, or their driver’s permit, or for Jane Purdy (Beverly Cleary’s Fifteen), their first boyfriend. But what awaits me? My second year in high school, for sure. But what else? I’m so impatient to turn fifteen, but also so unsure. My last year in Mia Maids, I’ll most likely get my permit, etc. Doesn’t that just seem like a dream to you, though? It seems almost impossible for me to ever have any of those things… especially the permit part. What age seems(ed) untouchable to you? What’s it like being fifteen?
