  49. 49. Lost Forever By: Joey Today I lost a friend. He was a hero, a heart warming, a goat. Some people say animals don’t have a soul, but I know they do. His soul is flying, flying in the sky, free running around. I hope God takes care of him. I lost a friend, that left. I yelled at him, to come back. He didn’t come. The thing I have in memory, is fur. A friend, is a friend. A human and a goat, made no difference. Beautiful possibilities…
  50. 50. Alison’s poem… He/Him He/Him Is what he wants to be. He/Him is hard to be. When there are people who don’t see. It’s who he needs to be. He tries to explain, but all he gets, Are the echoing screams of disgust. When we go to his house, She/her is what we are forced to say. I see the look in his dismal green eyes, He is in pain. He has such a kind heart, A smart, sharp mind. A smile that stretches longer than a mile. I love him so much, And he deserves all the love in the world. It’s hard for him to keep that beautiful smile, When all he wants in this entire world, Is to be, He/Him.
  51. 51. Our ultimate goal should be to create independent readers, writers, and thinkers who pick the level of audience needed when they need it. To create students who know how to navigate in this public space in the world and feel confident enough to do so.
