Favorite Quote:
A good leader doesn't necessarily take people to where they want to go, but ought to be. - Rosalynn Carter


We all belong to this world.
Whether we are boys
Girls, women, or men
We all belong to this world.
Whether we are tall or short,
Wide or thin
We belong to this world.
We can be funny or dull,
Loud or quiet,
Safe or dangerous
We all belong to this world.
We can dance or sing,
Write or draw,
Talk or scream,
It doesn’t matter
We all belong to this world.
Whether we are human or animals,
Officers or delinquents,
Students or drop-outs,
Dancers or lawyers
We all belong to this world
So reach for the stars
So you can be what you’re meant to be
In this world.

I was in Young Americans and they told us to write about belonging and this was the result. I was one of the five kids who had to read their poem aloud to the audience and I'm proud of it!
