By Mrs. Cucinella<br />My Coat of Arms Story<br />
The year was 1012 when I was walking in the woods .<br />I was contemplating what the design of my coat of arms should be, when suddenly, I came upon a small bird, who seemed helpless. I heard its sad chirping, as if he were longing for his family.<br />Carefully, I picked it up and placed it in my carrying satchel. <br />
I tried looking for its family<br />I felt loyal to the little bird, as I believed it to be my destiny to find its family. As I continued to walk on, suddenly I heard the roaring of water ahead. It was a raging river, I had no choice, but to cross. <br />
It was treacherous<br />Carefully, I placed one foot in front of the other, calculating every step. The water rushed past, I almost lost my footing, but I was able to recover. The little bird and I made it safely to the shore. Our trip continued. <br />
Our Journey Continues<br />Loud crashing noises broke the peaceful silence. The noise came closer and closer. What could it be? <br />Oh no! A bear.<br />
I followed my instincts.<br />Little bird and I dashed through the woods, my heart was beating wildly as I could hear the bear running close behind. Without thinking I picked up a large rock, and quickly threw it at the lumbering bear! He suddenly stopped, turned around and began to retreat. Amazed at my own good fortune, I continued to run with the little bird, still in my satchel.<br />
Peace at Last<br />The sound of raging water turned into a relaxing rhythm of water, the woods melted into a meadow with a welcoming castle on the water’s bank.<br />
It felt like home.<br />I heard the sound of birds chirping. Peace rushed over me. I knew I could release the little bird now, and he would be safe. <br /> We overcame the raging river, and the ferocious bear. I had protected the little bird, with loyalty and strength. We had a bond that could never be broken.<br />
My Coat of Arms<br /> I now knew what belonged on my coat of arms:<br />Blue for loyalty & strength<br />White for peace<br />A Wavy line for water<br /> A Bear for protection<br />
The castle on the hill<br /> As I approached the castle the great door opened. It seemed that the castle was beckoning to me, and so I entered. The busy servants welcomed me as their king. To this day I reside with my family, with the mighty coat of arms above the entryway. I’ll always remember the little black bird who began it all, so long ago. <br />
