Good Evening, my name is Daniel Rose. This evening I will share my adaptation of a poem entitled “Miracles” by Walt Whitman as I share my Miracles through the years!

What Makes of a Miracle?

 

As for me, I know there are nothing but Miracles of Moments I’ve shared as a student at City Academy.

And there has been many!

Whether a well needed Vitamin D day at Penrose Park after a bitter, frosty winter,

Or

Swim lessons at Mathews Dickey giving me yet another tool of how to survive,

Or

Long hikes, owl watching, and seeking unknown insects on our annual Shaw trip,

Or

My first extended overnight trip to Miniwanca where I had the courage to climb sand dunes,

Or

Leaving a footprint to have for my younger brother Christian to follow,

Or

Playing kickball with my friends on the old turf field,

Or

Volunteering by packing and sealing bags of staples for a family on World Food Day,

Or

Being one of the first to catch a small-mouth bass on our 6th grade camping trip,

Or

Throwing something as simple as a miniature ball around with my classmates,

Or

Being greeted each morning by Mr. Mitchell, our principal, with a joke or slight grin,

Or

Anticipating Friday water days on a scorching summer day at City,

Or

Mrs. Marilyn’s chocolate chip cookies after the end of a recital,

Or

Sharing memories with Mr. Danforth at our Sixth Grade Luncheon to Uncle Bill’s,

Or

Awaiting Mrs. Fisher, our former principal, to read “Bud, Not Buddy” after a fun-filled recess,

And foremost

The late night support from my parents with homework.

These ALL have been just a snippet of my Miracles here at City Academy!

I would like to acknowledge the faculty and staff for all they have done to help me embrace such Miracles and most of all, thank you to my parents for being the Miracle that devoted their time and patience to me and my brother Christian!
