Emma M: INSPIRATION
The value, inspiration, means a lot to me. It means a lot to me because I think everyone should
be inspired to do something. I am inspired to help charities by doing service hours.
The billboard for inspiration is about a little girl named Alex. She was inspired to do lemonade
stand when she was four years old. She wanted to give all of the money she made to “her hospital.” At
first, Alex donated over $2,000 to Connecticut Children’s’ Medical Center. Then, Alex and her family
moved to Philadelphia so they could pursue new treatment options. She still did the lemonade stand.
She raised $20,000 in honor of her friend who died with the same disease she had. Later, Alex set a goal
of raising $1,000,000. With the help of everyone around the country, she met her goal. She then made
another goal to raise $5,000,000 right before she died. Now, we still do lemonade stands in honor
of Alex and the inspiration she had.
This value and story relate to me because I help at the Alex’s Lemonade Stand every year. I
show this value in my own life by doing other service hours as well. I also like to help people. If you are
inspired to do something, you should because it brings you closer to God. It brings you closer to God
because you are trying to help others. That is why I picked this value.
Cecily J: SMILE
The word smile means happiness to me. Smile is such a happy word because it means fun, funny, awesome and cool. Smile is also a happy word because it reminds me of happy memories.
Leonardo Da Vinci painted a very famous portrait titled “Mona Lisa”. She smiled confidently for the portrait. Her smile inspires other artists, authors and songwriters. This is one of the best known paintings in the world. One of the most important gifts that Mona Lisa can give is her smile.
This value relates to me because I like to smile. Smiling is a fun thing to do because I am happy, and it is nice thing to do for someone else. This value brings me closer to God because smiling will brighten up someone’s day. It’s nice to see someone smile at you when you are sad or mad. Wouldn’t you like to be smiled at sometime?
Tate S: SPORTSMANSHIP
The value that I have chosen is sportsmanship. In my own words, sportsmanship means to encourage the players from the other team or yours, and to tell them to keep going. It also means to help them out if there are hurt even if it will cost you the game.
In this story, when Sara Tucholsky was going to hit her first home run, her knee broke. This would have been the first home run. Then Mallory Holtman asked her coach if she could go and help Sara, and Mallory was on the other team. Her coach said yes, and Mallory and her teammate Liz Wallace picked her up and carried her around the bases. This is a true representation of sportsmanship.
Sportsmanship relates to me by my own sports like lacrosse, and swim team. I could use it by helping my opponent if they fell in lacrosse, or went into the wrong lane in swimming. This value brings me closer to God because when I’m just had sportsmanship, I’m helping others so that brings me closer to God. It brings me closer to others because I’m helping them when I could of just walked past them. Sportsmanship, pass it on.
Henry K: Live Your Dreams
Live your dream is a great value. It’s about living how you what It to be . This mean a lot to me because it make me what to do anything I want to do. I want to be living the dream like Kermit the Frog.
