Lit. Charm


In this picture we are able to see a little girl who is giving a soldier flower. This probably gave the soldier hope and happiness, even if it wasn’t for long. There can be hope, happiness and care all over the world no matter what religion, gender, and race they might be from.

If You Think You are Beaten by Walter D. Wintle

If you think you are beaten, you are.

If you think you dare not, you don’t.

If you’d like to win but think you can’t,

It’s almost certain you won’t.

Life’s battles don’t always go

To the stronger or faster man,

But sooner or later, the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can.

This poem was very inspiring to me. When I read this poem, I got hope that I had more belief in myself, so I could be more determined. We all should convince that we are able to achieve everything that we hope for, like the poem says, “The man who wins is the man who thinks he can.”
