Happy New Year from Writers in the Schools

WITS is so grateful for the young minds we encounter like Magnolia, who offers such wise words for the new year:

Advice from a Butterfly

Fly high and wide in the blue sky.
Always be your beautiful self.
Never give up flying to somewhere hard.
Enjoy your multi-colored wings.
Don’t ever change your colorful wings.
Remember, no two butterflies are the same.
You have to go home because home is where the heart is.
Always think long term.
Sometimes you have to go out on a limb.
Challenge yourself harder every day.
Always be kind to other animals.

by Magnolia, 2nd grade
