2004 — Most Philosophical 5th Grader in America:

Samantha Brooks, Texas

You go to work and think nothing will happen
Five minutes later you hear on the radio we're going to war
We have been attacked.
You pray for those who lost loved ones
You donate money and blood
You watch the news every night.
But when you are in bed you think
Will there ever be world peace
Will we ever stop fighting?
Than you realize there will never be world peace
We live in a world of war and hatred
A world that will fight.
Too much madness and anger
Too much hatred and conflict
Human nature turned out the light.
