The Holocaust was a tragedy against people who were innocent such as Jews and disabled people.
This year on Saturday, January 27th, 2018, is Holocaust Remembrance Day. A day when many people think about one of the darkest times in world history. Eleven million people — children, women, and men — lost their lives in the Holocaust. The horrible loss of these people, these families, is why it is important for us to remember. If we forget the Holocaust, history could repeat itself.
Instead of starting a war just to prove someone is better than someone else, remember, treat everyone with respect, kindness, and equality.
Everyone has equal rights, and should be treated as such, no matter what.

Were you wondering why there were teddy bear posters in the third grade hallway? That is because Brownie Troop number 65684 was wanting teddy bears, new stuffed animals or other used stuffed animals. “Why does the third grade Brownies want stuffed animals?” You may be asking yourself. They want stuffed animals because children in hospitals and orphanages may need the stuffed animals to calm them down. “How many stuffed animals did they raise?” You may eagerly ask. The Brownie Troop raised 75 stuffed animals! Some of the Brownie Troop members are Cate, Gillian, Alivia, Summer, Jaden, and Addie. They collected the stuffed animals from October 23 to November seventh. As you can see, the third grade Brownie Troop did very well in getting lots of stuffed animals.
It is a typical morning when you sit down in your fifth grade classroom, ready for another day of work. Ms. Wren walks into the classroom and hands you and the other student council members in your class a note. The note states that there is to be a meeting for student council members during recess.
You carry out your day normally, and at recess head to Ms. Wren’s classroom. She hands you a sheet of paper, and you sit down to read the paper. It tells you what you’ll be talking about. Today the paper says you’ll be talking about Monday morning announcements, monthly assemblies, and more. You begin your meeting. You come out of the meeting room knowing you’re doing morning announcements next week, you are talking about box tops at the next assembly, and you are to help out kindergarten the next day.
