Writing is not only a way to communicate, it is a tool for expressing your thoughts and exploring new ideas. Ever since I was young, I have kept a diary. I wrote my thoughts in my diary every day. Now that I am older, I still enjoy writing, and I often write short stories. Sometimes I still like to write down my thoughts at the end of the day. It helps me understand myself better, and it helps me see my life more clearly. __________________________________________________________
My nephews Jason and Levi are like a ray of sunshine in my cloudy life. Every time I see them, they make me smile, even if I’m in a bad mood. Although they are much younger than me, I enjoy talking to them and sharing secrets with them. We like to go swimming and hiking as well as playing basketball sometimes. My nephews look up to me, so I try to behave well and give them a good example. I am glad my nephews live near me, and I am excited to watch them grow up.
For people around the world, the Red Cross is often the difference between life and death. For several years, the Red Cross has been helping people who are sick, victims of wars, and victims of natural disasters. The Red Cross does not take sides, but rather helps anyone who needs help. After Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the Red Cross worked hard and saved many lives. Also, after Japan was hit by a tsunami in 2011, the Red Cross helped the people there get through this difficult time.
