  • 6. Thomas Edison Thomas Alva Edison lit up the world with his invention of the electric light. Without him, the world might still be a dark place.

  • 7. A Messy Brother My brother Tim and I each have our own room. My brother has always been very messy, and I’ve always been very neat. When I would change into my pajamas, I’d hang my clothes over my chair. Tim would throw his on the floor. By Saturday of each week, the floor of Tim’s room would be covered with a huge pile of dirty clothes mixed with most of the pieces of a chess set, open books, and crumpled pieces of homework. That’s when my mother would come in. She would take one look at his room and say, “Tim, you’re not going anywhere until this room is fit for human habitation—no one would want to live here.”
