To whomever finds this
I want everyone to know the injustice that is about to take place. In my plan to escape Mr. Pembroke the man trying to kill me I boarded the ship the Earthly Pleasure. I had to wait many hours under a tarp. After I was sure everyone was asleep I made for the kitchen. I was able to find barrels filled with salted fish and water. I gorged myself silly, and I foolishly looked for dessert. There was a box marked chocolates when I reached for the box was full of empty cans! They created so much noise setting of dynamite would’ve been quieter. Immediately the cook came and dragged me to the captain’s quarters. They decided for entertainment they would dress me like a pirate and act like I was one.
So they did and put me in stocks and told the made up tale of my villainy. One of the brats from the gundeck, the ten year old with the cruel face rushed the stage, yelled “EVIL!” and spit in my eye. The others soon followed spitting and throwing food at me. Now I’m waiting here soon to be given 20 lashes and marooned on a deserted island.
Sincerely, Egbert Masterson
I wanted to answer the question
I really really did
But my limbs and mouth won’t do as I bid
I want to get up and walk like normal people do
I want to scream and shout with people just like you
I want to run like lightning you see
But things like that are far beyond me
In this unit I learned that no single race is superior to the other. Just because someone is black or white or has blonde or red hair doesn’t make them better or worse than the next man/woman. Because it is not what race you are it depends on what you do as an individual that makes you bad or good. You have to be careful when judging somebody so your feelings about them aren’t about their race. When I was young I never trusted Chinese people because they were so different from me now i’ve learned to not trust somebody just because of what they look like. Hitler believed that only one race was superior to all other races but that of course is not true. One of my friends was wary of a stranger just because she was Mexican. You should never judge someone by their race.
In this unit I learned that you don’t judge somebody at first look. You should always get to know the person before you pass judgement. Because if everybody judged everything on first look nobody would try anything and the world would boring and dull. You have to be cautious when judging somebody and get to know them. One time I was at a vending machine I saw a woman with piercings and I walked away and didn’t even get my candy. Hitler based his hatred on all Jews because some Jews running an art school didn’t let him in. One time in New york my grandma was greeted by a hobo she was startled and scared because he couldn’t speak English and was wearing rags. You should never judge a book by its cover.
Today was supposed to be a happy occasion the last day of September the Jewish new year .Instead today was really scary, at the synagogue the rabbi said that German soldiers took the list of our names. Now Mother and Father went with Peter and I’m staying here with the Johansens. Mr. Johansen says that the Germans are relocating all the Jews,whatever that means. So I am staying with Annemarie tonight and I don’t know how long I’m going to be here. The Germans must have used the list from the synagogue because it had all of our addresses.
Until next time, Ellen
second one up was Dad
he looked me in the eyes
he said I was crazy
from my head down to my thighs
he went to bed but could not deny
with me there not a wink of sleep would get by
so he got up a little bit later
his grumbling as loud as a radiator
then came Mom in her nightgown
as she got her coffee with a big frown
the last one was Drew
and he sleeps like he has the flu
but Dad was able to move him from his bed
Drew looked as though he was touched in the head
now with all my kin
the presents screamed to be opened
and christmas was about to begin
This year has been overall successful.
I got into GT which was one of my life goals.
I also got advanced on all STAARs.
Things have been crazy because of Mr. Mac.
It’s fun to watch him explain in weird ways like
telling us stories relating to the topic.
Recently Mrs. Brantley let us do Rube
Goldberg projects we had to think real
hard to think of ways to make it work.
I wonder what will happen in 6th grade.
Most everyone said my team did great .
I liked having to work together to make a presentation .
It like I and my friends were in a office trying to teach other people about GS .
Although it was hard we succeeded and did great at it .
we had to use all components to make a good presentation .
