Today is hat day. I like wearing hats. But I only like to raise money. The reason why is because when I grow up I want to be a nurse and help people. I feel sad to see and hear that a mom had her two sons in her arms but the tsonumy pulled her in. She had to let go of her oldest son and pulled her and her son to safty. When the tsonumy was done she went down to see if her oldest boy survived. He was hanging to a tre lime. He most of seen it when he was trying to get to safty. He grabbed on to the three lime and hanged on for a vary vary long time. But he srvivd and they are happy to be together again. ...Sierra, grade 3

I think it is a good thing that we are raising money for the people in South East Asia because of the Tsunami. The money will help the people who are hurt and it will help the people get their selfs back to normal. The money will also help them get back to their families. I am glad our school is helping the people in South East Asia.

I think raising money for the Tsunami Relief is a good idea because a lot of people have died. Today we are raising money for everyone that was hit. Some might go to a Red Cross. Other money might go to people that need food and water. I think more than 140,000 people were hit by the Tsunami. I feel sorry for all the people that got hit or died.
