Alex was asked by his teacher to make a presentation at the PTA meeting on October 27th. He and several other children wrote what they were thankful for and then read their papers at the meeting. Below is what Alex wrote. I did not get to hear it until the meeting.
I am thankful that my grandmother and grandfather got out of hurricane Rita’s way. That is because Beaumont, where they lived. was the hardest hit area. No significant damage was done to their house, but the area around it is a mess. That is what I am thankful for.
