2007 Fifth Grade Second Place

Hannah Stanley, Texas.


I am because you are

A community creates violence

Destroying their balance

But two people mend their broken thoughts

Looking at the beginning of their tussle

Following a river that is full of many choices, beliefs, and judgment.

Compassion provides an anchor of peace.

Both long to know where they are headed, and may never know

What they do know is that compassion will hold them near one another
