I got saved here when I tripped and cut open my tongue. Thank you doctors and nurses! I was taught how to wear my bike helmet safely by a firefighter and have seen you put out a fire. Thank you, firefighters!
I was taught many things by you, especially this year. You are so nice and I will miss you. Thank you, teachers. I get great food, shelter, water and fun here. Thank you, parents. I love you.
