I can relate to "The New Kid" by sousan r. as sousan describes her first day of school, I am thinking back to my first day. I remeber, walking in, seeing all these kids greeting each other happily. Sitting on the playground bench becuase I didn't know anyone still haunts me today. I understand her feeling of people not knowing how to pronouce her name correctly. Sousan wrote "i immedialty sunk into my seat", I can still describe every detail when i did that. I really connect with her on the topic of having the feeling of not fitting in becuase the students grew up together. These issuses effects alot of children today. Where I go to school, we have kids from the west, south, east and north of America. We accept them into our little school, so they don't have to go through what I went through.
