Birds of Prey

On a recent visit to Florida, I went to the Audobon Birds of Prey Center in Maitland, Florida. At the Birds of Prey Center, they work to rehabilitate injured birds with the goal of releasing them to the wild. Birds that cannot be rehabilitated remain at the Birds of Prey Center. Among the birds that I saw there were osprey, American bald eagle, peregrine falcons, barn owl and hawks. I was disappointed because we got there shortly before closing time. I was thinking that we would not have a lot of time to see many of the birds. Instead, I got to see the workers move many of the birds from their daytime cages to the cages where they stay at night. The employees kindly spent a long time talking about the birds. They told us their breeds, names, injuries, how they were found, and how long each bird had been at the Center.

Here is a link to their website if you are interested in learning more about the Birds of Prey Center:

Why friendships are important.
Have you ever been lonely? Or needed someone to listen to your problems? A friend is someone who can help you with this.
Friends can cheer you up when you are sad. For example in the movie pitch perfect when Beca got in trouble for breaking a window when she gets back to her dorm her friends are there waiting for her. That was so nice of her friends. That’s why friends are important.
In additions friends can make you laugh. For example me and my friends have so many inside joke that only we understand. I bet if someone else heard the jokes they would think we were so weird. Friends are also really important because they make you laugh.
In conclusion friends are important to make you laugh and to cheer you up. Friends are always there for you when you need them. Next time you see your friends tell them how much you appreciate your friendship.

Explode a Moment

I’m pacing anxiously across my room. My burning eyes are dried from all the tears. Each tick of the second hand feels like an eternity. What if she is dead? What if she paralyzed? What if I never see her again? My hot clammy hand grips the phone as I run my fingers over the buttons. One tick- I slammed the car door unsuspecting of the deadly event that lied in the near future. Two ticks- the shrill of the sirens pierced the cold think air. Three ticks- her lifeless body. Her pale face. Her cold hands. Four ticks- hot burning tears streamed down my face as the ambulance speed away. Five ticks- my phone’s ring tone breaks the silence and the hospitals number appears on the screen.
