About Bella

Hello my name is Isabella and I am 12 years old and am in 6th grade at Groton Dunstable Regional Middle School. I have one sister named jenny and a brother named Alex. I also have a dog named Dakota who is a golden retriever, and a great dog. I also have 2 gerbils named Hacoo and Chihero. Then there’s my mother who is, and I quote “the best mom ever”. Last but not least there is Meagan who is my mom’s best friend’s daughter who wanted to come along too. My friends Maya, Heather, Faith and Annalise all don’t want me to go (I agree) because my mom says that we might not move back to Groton.

OK…. Traveling is not my best idea of fun. The thing I say that started it is Three Cups Of Tea. So my brother Alex my mom and I were reading it and my mom kept saying that it was so “moving” but I just thought it was another story but then she said that we should help people all over the world like that. I dismissed the idea like she was kidding but… I wasn’t so lucky.

One of the problems of going on this trip is that I don’t like airplanes or another way to say it is that I would prefer to never set foot on one in my entire life.

Although the more I think about it the more I think it’s the right thing to do. I mean just last week the huge earthquake in Haiti killed thousands upon thousands of people.

Just think, the earthquake destroyed all of their homes and went right through the heart of their government. How are they to rebuild if there is no one in charge, if there’s no medicine? Well actually there is medicine right across the street as a matter of fact, but no one can deliver it. Now imagine that but now put it in a different perspective, imagine the third world countries like this. All of the third world countries are poor but not as poor as Haiti. All of them aren’t as lucky as the U.S. most people don’t have educations most don’t have the best lives they could. People don’t know how amazing something like a education is. MOST take it all for granted. This is what we are trying to do, to give people the simple things they need like water, to drink. Or clothes to wear. Some people don’t have these things and we will try to help everyone we can. This is how I feel about this trip and this is what I will do.

Why "Three Cups of Tea" can be dangerous! – by Bella

Sure it was touching, but sill. I couldn’t handle it, I felt as if it was pushing me towards my own adventure. Some […]

Traveling far from home

Trips: for me, it all depends on how far I have to go away from home. One day our mom shouted “We’re going to Disney World!” Now you may say to yourself, ‘What kind of child wouldn’t want to go to Disney World?’ I’m right along with you, but now let’s put the whole ‘how […]
