March Madness for Reading! PDF Print Email

Thompson Child DevelopmentI love it when my mommy reads to me. My favorite book is “Green Eggs and Ham,” by Dr. Suess. This month my best friend’s preschool is having a reading competition and their school hopes to read 25,000 books. That is a lot of books! She says it is because reading is so important.

Today they had a famous author come in and read to her class. She writes books about talking bugs. The book she read about was about a Ladybug named Lady Grace. I love ladybugs. I love it when my mommy reads to me.

Judy Shepard speaks to the crowd at the Believe in Youth Annual Awareness event hosted by Campus Pride and Time Out Youth.Believe in Youth Annual Event

If you don’t have ties to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community you may not know what life is really like for an LGBT person. You may believe that in these modern times we live in a pretty tolerant and loving community.

Twelve years ago Judy Shepard’s, 21-year old son Matthew was brutally murdered in a robbery turned hate crime. After Matthew’s death, Judy and her husband Dennis started a foundation called The Matthew Shepard Foundation. Judy shared her message of replacing hate with understanding, compassion and acceptance at the Believe in Youth event held in Charlotte.

My mommy always takes us to the doctor. I heard Grandma tell mommy not to forget about herself. Mom always refuses because she says it is too much money she has tried to get into a free clinic but she was turned down. Mom has diabetes and finally ran out of her medication. I get scared when mommy is sick.

Grandma found a doctor my mom could go to without insurance that would not cost a lot of money. Today my mom and I took the bus to the Care Ring Clinic, it is located right by where the Bobats play basketball.

Charlotte Anychild citizen schoolsCitizen Schools - 6 Degrees

Whenever my cousin comes to stay with us we have fun. He is in middle school and he is sooo smart. Grandma says things really turned around for him when he began participating in a program at his school called Citizen Schools. Grandma said he hated school and she really thought he was going to fail 6th grade. That was until a friend told him about the Citizen Schools program at his school. He had many friends who participated and he was invited to join. Now that he is a part of the Citizen Schools program, grandma says his grades are much better and he really loves school.
