NMS - Red Ribbon Week Essay

Red Ribbon Week Essay: Know the Real Cost
By: Marissa Gordnier - 7th Grader at Northeastern Middle School

Imagine, you're hanging out with your friends behind the school one of your friends reaches into their pocket and pulls out a pack of cigarettes. They hand one to your other friend and then offer you one. You're confused on how to approach this. You don’t want to look like a scaredy cat in front of your friends, but you also don’t know if it is safe for you. Many people have been faced with situations close to this. Sadly, students have made the poor decision and were hooked onto drugs, alcohol, or other substances. This is why we need to inform students on ways to deal with certain scenarios that they may be faced with in the future.

You are sleeping over at your friends house with a bunch of your friends; you're having fun watching movies, having pillow fights, and joking around. You go down to dinner when one of your friend’s (the host) older siblings stops you in the hallway. They ask you if you would like to smoke a cigarette with them. You're frightened of what they would do to you if you declined and what would happen to you if you accepted. This happens quite often and you shouldn’t be frightened. One way to address this situation is to politely decline and walk away. If they continue asking you, try going to a trusted adult or to the host of the slumber party and tell them. By accepting the older siblings offer you would put yourself in a terrible position risking your health and could possibly get you addicted. It is better to decline and walk away from that situation.

NMS Veteran's Day Essay

Noah Brown - 7th Grade
Veterans Day Essay
Prompt: Is this the county the Founding Fathers envisioned?

The United States are built on the vision of the Founding Fathers. They ensured that the country was built on a strong respect for others, a strong leadership, following the constitution, and the individual’s rights. These visionaries published a document that was an inspiration to all citizens worldwide. The Founding Fathers made sure to include individual rights, fairness, and happiness into the lives of future citizens of the country. The visionaries wanted the government to be established to ensure freedom and individual rights. The Founders knew that with power came consequence. They wanted power to be used for the good of all people.

Benjamin Rush stated, “It is favorable to liberty. That freedom can exist only in the society of knowledge. Without learning, men are incapable of knowing one's rights, and where learning is confined to a few people, Liberty can be neither equal nor universal.” This quote from Benjamin Rush is stating for future citizens that knowledge should be accessible to everyone. Therefore, I believe that the Founding Fathers would be happy about how things look today in this country, because anybody has access to knowledge by attending educational programs.

NES Student Recognition

Alice Couch - Van Pelt

Veterans have done so much for our country, and they should to be treated with great respect and gratitude for what they have done. Sometimes people don’t always understand what veterans have done for us and our country. Veterans have risked their lives for our freedom, and fought in our wars. If it wasn’t for veterans we wouldn’t be here today.

To serve in the military means giving up a lot of time with your family. You will probably end up missing holidays and celebrating them with your family. Most veterans miss their child being born and watching them grow up! A lot of veterans left to join the military right after high school and that means they gave up some of their youth to fight in wars. Once the veterans left for the military they basically gave up who they were and didn’t come back the same person.

Veterans gave up dreams and careers to go fight in our wars. For example if someone was so close, and undoubtedly going to have a career as a professional soccer player but then decided to go serve in the military. They would be giving up on their careers and dreams which takes a lot of courage and determination. We should thank veteran’s for that.

Veterans have experienced lots of pain physically, and emotionally. They’ve had friends die right in front of them and couldn’t do anything about, or have been badly injured from fighting. When you’re in the military’s like you’re getting damaged and broken. As a result in the end you get built back again and are even stronger physically, and emotionally.

Veterans who have served in the military are proud of it and they should be. Veterans have said that they are glad that they served, and don’t regret a single thing about it. Veterans have fought for us, died for us, and gave us our freedom. We owe all our thanks to veterans and they should be treated with great respect and gratitude for what they have done. Thank you veterans.

Veterans... Thank You... thank you for the rights that you have continued to protect. Thank you for serving this country in a capacity that most will never know or understand. In my own journey through life I have made the decision to follow the path of all you brave men and women who have gone before. As I have discussed this with friends, teachers, counselors, and yes, even my family I often get asked, why? Why do you want to go into the military? Although that decision did not come lightly it is very basic... that uniform. That uniform that says; yes teacher, yes friend, yes stranger on the street, I am willing to fight for all of our rights. That is why. I have watched the old war movies watched the old war documentaries and came to the realization how quickly the things we take for granted every day can come to an end if people are not willing to fight for the beliefs we hold dear. I know that there will still be folks that question why? And all I can say is... for you...
