Bad Haircut

I got a bad haircut.

I hate

haircuts!

Because people in

My class always laugh at me.

That's why I hate haircuts!

Haircuts are dumb.

I told my mom not

To cut it like this.

But she did.

EEEEEEER!

--Sam, 8

World Peace

I wish the wars would stop.

We would all be friends with each other.

No shooting, killing, bombing, fighting!

World peace is what this world seeks.

We would love each other

Like we love our family,

Hugging and kissing.

We'd stand by each other, forever and forever,

Year after year.

This world needs world peace.

--Olivia, 9

Turtle Rock Elementary
