Hello my name is Tori Rymer. These are some of the things I am really greatful for. First, my family. I have 6 brothers, 2 sisters, step-mom, step- dad, Mom, and Dad. They may argue with me, but I still love them. Another BIG thing I am thankful for is my hero, my dad, Jimbob/ Blue. He is battling colon cancer. When he feels down, I bring him up, and when I feel down he brings me up. I love him so much. Third thing is our religion because I have the right to believe in anything. Also the Veterans. They let us have freedom to do whatever we would lie to do. Another thing is my school, North Elementary everyone there gives me comfort especially my teacher, Dr. Vincent. When I am crying she hugs me and makes me feel better. I’m also thankful for the roof over my head so when it rains I am not cold. The next thing is my friends Kara, Savannah, and Tori Layne. They always comfort me in hard times. Another is my mom, because she dries my tears, helps me when I am sick. Another thing is my papa Steve Rymer. He helps my dad get through his tough time. Along with my granny Lynda Rymer. Also I am thankful for my aunts and uncles, Sarah and Jasen, Ann and Chris, Maria and Jerry, Shaynen and Hugh, Ethan and Steph, Brandon and Kristy. They all stand by my side, hold my hand and says it will be okay, I will go through this with you. One more thing is Micha and Jenny they help Crystal baby sit along with my big sister Brentni Rymer and my nanny Thelma. These are some things I am greatful/ thankful for.

What I’m thankful for is everything really. My house gives me shelter from rain and storms and outside, my car gives me transportation to places I need to be, and my family gives me support when times are hard for me. They give me love and everything I need. I am thankful for my food because it keeps me alive, my school because it makes me smart and my teachers in the school because they help me learn the things I need to learn. I am thankful for money because it buys me food and other supportive things I need. I am thankful for my world because it lets me live on it, the armed forces be-cause they fight for our freedom. Last, but not least, my life because God gave me a gift to be here and without it I wouldn’t be here so I’m thankful to God.

Sixth Grade
If I had to choose three things I am thankful for it would be my family, the people who serve this country, and the technology we have today. I am thankful for these things because if we lived without them my life would be dif-ferent. Starting with my family, they make sure I have food, water, shelter, and everything else I need during the year for example, school supplies. Next, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, etc. These people keep us safe and protected. Think about it… what would happen if no corps, or all branches of the military existed? Criminals could do as they please and people in the 9/11 attack would have been able to walk freely without us responding to their attack. Finally, for the technology we have today we could not control our military planes from halfway across the world instead of the person being in the plane flying manually, or we could not call from America to an unknown place like Canada or Mexico.

Some of the reasons I am thankful for my family is that they are always there for me no matter what. They will always have my back in any situation. My parents put a roof on my head and food to eat. My friends are always there for me and always have my back. My school teaches me valuable tools that I will need later in highschool and college. It even teaches me valuable life lessons that will help me mature in my growing years.

Julianna Blake Witt
Seventh Grade
I am thankful for a lot. I am most thankful for my friends and just to have them here to help me whenever I need it. I am also very thankful for food. Food also comforts me when I’m sad and that’s great. Both food and friends comfort me a lot, but they also interrupt me while I’m watching Chi-nese/Korean shows. That’s another thing I’m thankful for. I’m thankful for Chi-nese/Korean shows. They are amazingly made. Even though they are not in Eng-lish, I love them. I have read more in my life more in my life reading subtitles then I ever have reading books. I am thankful for meteor garden, acci-dentally in love, good morning call, and many more of the Chi-nese/Korean shows on Netflix that I am either currently watching or al-ready have watched. Also, I am thankful for Netflix to provide me with these shows and many more shows and movies that are amazing. Like anime, an-other thing I’m thankful for. I am very, very thank-ful for the internet, and phones. Because without my phone I wouldn’t be able to talk to my friends without having to go out of the house. It’s great. Pretty much everything I’m thankful for ties around in one big loop called, “my life.” Because without a device, There would be no internet. Without the in-ternet, there would be no Netflix. Without Netflix, there would be no Chi-nese/Korean shows or anime to watch. Without any shows to watch, I wouldn’t have something to miss when I look away to eat some food. Without food or friends, there would be nothing to help me get through tough times. Without all of that, I have no life. Because those things make up who I am and how I spend my time. That’s why I am very, very, thankful for all of these things in my life that has shown up to help me be who I am and be known for those things, and to have a topic I can relate with others on. I don’t want to be a blank robot with nothing to talk about or to answer simple ques-tions like, “have you seen the new episode of meteor garden?” Thank you.
Maddie Cornwell
I am thankful for a lot of things. First of all I am thankful for my cheer team. I have had many ups and downs with them but we have still stuck togeth-er. Also, I am thankful for my shows that I watch, like Grey’s Anatomy and Riverdale. My shows help me get through bad things in life that are bringing me down. I am thankful for my pets, because when I’m having a bad day, they can always cheer me up. Also, my siblings are always there for me too. I can al-ways depend on them. Whenever I need to talk about something, I talk to them. The last thing I am thankful for, is the most important, it is my family and friends, because they are always there for me. Like my grandparents, be-cause when I am around them they make me laugh. All of these things are very dear to me, and I wouldn’t know what to do without them, and that is what I am thankful for.

Dylan Sanders
I’m thankful for my family because my family loves me. They put a roof over my head, put food on my dinner plate, buy me stuff, come watch me play basketball, and they sup-port me in everything else and I’m very thankful for them. My mom makes sure I have good clothes to wear for school and she cooks for the family. She comes to all my basketball games and supports me. My dad works and makes money for us. He works at a place called “Yorozu Au-tomotives” and has been working there for 17 years. My brother inspired me to play basketball. I wanted to play when I saw him play-ing and so he taught me how to play basketball. My baby sister plays and runs around the house and to-gether we play hide and seek and tag around the house. My mom got a dog and I love it. My sister cries everytime it bites her. I’m thankful for my pa and granny. They love and they care for me. They feed me sometimes on the week-end. I’m also thankful for my uncle and my aunt. They care for me. They feed everybody some-times to. I’m thankful for all my cousins that live around my house and oth-er ones that don’t. I love to go shoot basketball down at my cousins house. I’m also thankful for basketball. I started playing basketball in the third grade. I have played it since the third grade. I play for the Swiss Wildcats and I am thankful for the teachers that teach. They spend a lot of their time trying to make us smarter and I like that. That is everything I’m thankful for. I love every-body in this paragraph.
Hunter Green
I’m thankful for a lot of things but they’re only 2 that are very important; my family and my free-dom. Most people would say different but those are the most important to me and if I didn’t I would be nothing or mean nothing. Freedom we all have it but can you imagine life with-out it well kids live without it every day and the suffer because there forced in to stuff in country’s. Also family isn’t as common as it should be they’re orphans all over the world who need a family. That’s why i’m thankful because it’s something that can easily taken away from us and misused.
Landon Kirkland
I’m thankful for many things. I am thankful for my crazy best friend who never fails to put a smile on face during the good and bad days. She is great and I couldn’t ask for a better person to have in my life. I’m also thankful for my family. They support me whenever I need it; they have never failed to be there for me through the good and bad. I’m so for-tunate to be surrounded by such inspiring, kind people. They are my strength and weakness. My grandparents are a huge part of my life, and I would not change that. They do not get enough credit for what they do for us. They are truly the best people I have met. They never miss a game or anything im-portant. They work hard and never stop trying to help my family. I hope they know how much they mean to me. My dogs are super important to me. They are both like my shadow; they follow me everywhere. They always make me laugh. I cannot imagine my life without dogs; they bring so much happiness and laughter to the world. I’m thankful for sports. They push me to improve and do my very best. My coach is great; yes, she can be a little hard on us, but it is worth it. She has taught me so much. My teachers are a huge part of my life. I see them for sev-en hours, five days a week. They help me improve in my education, and school is important to me. My teachers always try to chal-lenge me to make me try harder. They are great role models. I am so blessed to have all of these things and people in my life.
Peyton Meeks
I am thankful because I have people who love and care about me. I have my family who will always be there for me, I have food, and the opportunity to talk to friends who I go to school with. I get a great education. Some people in the world don’t have much so i’m very thankful for having things. I am thankful because I don’t have much money, but I can afford food and a place to live. I am thankful for my sister which works hard for our family. I am thankful for all of my family even though we’ve been through hard times. Every year on Thanksgiving our family comes to my house and bonds. My family is thank-ful to have a place to live because we’ve moved so much and I’ve been to several different schools because of the moving I have more friends. I am thankful for my teachers because they have taught me new things and for my mom and dad who have raised me to be a good child. Although, we don’t have things that other peo-ple do i’m still thankful for my family no matter what. I am thankful for going to a school which brings me friends where I can fit in with other students. That’s some of the reasons I’m thankful.
Raylan Baker
I’m thankful for many things.For example, Some-thing that I’m thankful for is life.Life is a precious gift that God gave to us.The odds of us being born are 1 in 400 trillion, or more, as Google says. That’s amaz-ing, right? You were prob-ably somewhere roaming in the middle of nowhere when all of a sudden life is given to you! Another thing I’m thankful for is the in-ternet.Without the inter-net, I wouldn’t be able to do most of my school-work.That is where I do my research at for pro-jects,homework, or if you wanted to back up your theory of something, you could use the internet to see whether you’re correct or not correct. Also, the in-ternet is a place where you can express your opinion and your creativity!! For example, making comedy videos or posting your drawings online.Fun Fact, the internet was “born” in the year 1989.Tim Bern-ers-Lee invented HTML and wrote the first ever web server and client software. On the 6th of Au-gust, in the year 1991, The World Wide Web went live to the entire world! There was no fanfare in global press. In fact, hardly no one knew what the inter-net was! Just imagine, How life was like before the in-ternet was discovered! Probably boring, but they had ways to entertain themselves, if they sur-vived that long without the internet. I am thankful for so many other things, but I just can’t list them all here! If I did, It would be at least 10 pages long! That is all the things (that I could list) that I am thankful of.
Haylina
I’m thankful for all of my friends and family that love me. Knowing that i’m loved by my family and friends makes me happy. I’m also thankful that the lord has protected me, my family, and my friends. Another reason why i’m thankful is because of the condition i’m living in pre-sent. Several amounts of children are suffering in life because of their situa-tion and obstacles they are put through. I’m also grate-ful for the food that i eat everyday as well as my house and other objects that cost money. I’m thankful for the technology that i have and the amounts of freedom i get. All of these several reasons and more are why i’m thankful in life.
Destiny Green
am thankful that I have a home to live in, money to buy what I want, and for the food I eat. I’m also thankful for all my friends and family because they help me through all my rough times and help me with school which they are all close to my heart. I am also thankful for all of my teachers and all the people like that who help me do all my work and make me work so I know how to go through life and know how to do things. They have helped me through every-thing and now when I need help, they help me when I need their help. I’m also thankful for this great world that I live in and all the great people in it like all the inspirational people who help the whole world through things. I also am inspired when I see my friends all working hard and that makes me want to do the same I just love them all! I think that all these things are great and I love everything that is giv-en to me because even the small things can change someone’s life, and I think of the people who don’t even get these things.They just all inspire me to do better and I couldn’t do it without them.If I had to choose between them and me I would choose them because they inspire me so they might also inspire others.
Adam Borne
I am thankful for a lot of things, but the most im-portant thing i’m thankful for is my family and sister. My sister is my pride and joy she is the sweetest thing when she wants to be. My mom is the reason I’m here and she has al-ways been there for me when needed and she tends to comfort me. My dad is the one I go to when i need help with home-work, life problems, and if I need something done. The second thing I’m thankful for is my grand-parents, and my great grandparents. I love every one of them my “nana” lives right beside me so I can see her anytime I want. My other granny used to live in Whitwell so I didn’t get to see her alot, but then she moved closer to us just to be able to see us more. My “BB” she is 82 and I love her to death, she says “i’m her baby.” I am also thankful for my friends without them I would be lonely and I probably wouldn’t laugh at school which would be dreadful. I’m thankful for many other things but this is what i’m most thankful for.
Kimber Thomas
I am thankful for eve-rything I have in this world, including my best friend in the world, she has sup-ported me through every-thing in this world I love her so much.She has been by my side for the past five years, we have never sepa-rated from each other if she is far away I will call her, and if I am far away she will call me so I mean how are we not friends. I am also thankful for my parents and grandparents they have to deal with me, but they have took more care of me than anyone in this world in my opinion they are the best people in my life, and that’s why I am still in this world, and living right now typing this. I live with my grandparents and my father and. My grand-parents mainly take care of me when my father is not there.When my father is home I just go to my room and lock the door or stay right next to my grand-mother or grandfather, when they are not there I just go crazy but clean up my mess because I am a very nice grandchild to both of them. They are the best thing in my whole life I love them with my entire heart. I love you half out of my mind. I love you.
Macie A.
I am thankful for the life we have been given, the friends we have made, the family I have, and the people who fought for us so we could have a happier life to live. The ones who gave their life for us. Peo-ple on Earth are not all the same, some give their lives and some save lives. I am extremely thankful for the soldiers that fought every day for us. Everyone hopes for that one day when they will form a new family of their own. Mothers and fa-thers everywhere are watching over their young praying that one day they will grow up to be an amaz-ing person, one that others will never forget. There are many reasons to be thank-ful, some might have more reasons to be than others. We have people all around us to make us happy and who give us reasons to live everyday happily. Even on your worst days always remember that someone gave their life for yours.
Kailey Grooms
I am thankful for having the internet because it lets me talk to my friends, play fortnite and watch youtube. Another reason I am thankful for the inter-net is because it powers a lot of stuff like google, siri, cortana and many more. Some downs to the inter-net is that it makes the electricity bill go up you al-so have to pay for it. In ad-dition it also it is not porta-ble unless you buy minutes but those expire and some internet boxes are wired so it’s bad when power goes out or when your little sister trips over the cord. Some up sides are that if you have someone who lives far way you can call them on messenger which is powered by the internet or you can play fortnite with your friends and use youtube to complete chal-lenges like follow the map found in risky reels if you and your friend are having trouble finding it.
Skylar Jayden Garner
What I am thankful for is fish and reptiles. The reason that I am thankful for these things is because they interest me and they allow me to have some-thing to do to keep enter-tained. I like to build en-closures for them, create habitats, or play with them. Another thing that I am thankful for is my parents because they allow me to have animals, such as fish. They also feed me and take me to my basketball games. Also, I am thankful for my friends because they are good friends and they like to play fortnite with me. We are all usually playing fortnite when we get home from school and they are just nice friends to have. These are some of the things that I am thank-ful for.
Damien Mainord
I’m very thankful for my parents. Even though they are not my real par-ents I love them so much. They got to see me the day after I was found. After a little while they were able to take me home and call me their daughter. They had to take care of me all the time because I was al-ways getting hurt. Always jumping off of stuff. They loved having me around and they said I would do almost everything they told me to. They would do stuff for me. I would try and do the same for them. They took care of me with noth-ing in return. They would take me and my older sis-ter places and we would have so much fun. Then when I had little siblings I felt an adult, but I always needed my mom and dad. Since there were seven of us it could be hard to take all of us places. But we made anything we did fun. We would go into the liv-ingroom and watch movies together. Later on we moved to another place and I was very nervous but my mom and dad would always help me. One day when I was home my mom said that she was sick after a doctors appointment so I tried my best to make her feel better. Every Christ-mas I would get them something to show how much I love them.Then I came to a conclusion I don’t need to give them gifts to show how much I love them, so after that I told them that I love them every day and give them hugs and kisses. I still give them presents but now I give them little presents every single day. I’m so lucky to have them as my parents. They are the best parents that I could ever ask for.
Amanda Poston
I am thankful for my family because they help me when I am having a hard time and they always make me smile. I am thankful to have such close friends by my side even if I am having a bad day they never fail to cheer me up. I am thankful for God be-cause if we did not have him we would not be here and have such a amazing world as we do today. I am thankful for my teachers because they help me learn even if I do not want to, and also I’m thankful for food because without food we would die. I am thankful for my house be-cause without it I would have no place to live. The thing I am most thankful for is my life because no-body’s life is perfect, but I might be biased when I say mine is really good.
Zella White
Im thankful to have a place to live and have food on my table. I don’t have to worry about starving. I’m thankful that I got a family that loves me and helps me with anything if they can. And that I’m on the basketball team for my coaches and teammates. I’m also thankful for my grades and the stuff I have accomplished through life like the stuff I have at home because many don’t have what some do. Eve-ryone should be thankful for everything they have.I ‘m thankful for a lot of things, mostly what I have accomplished and what I will accomplish in my life.The am most thankful for is my family and sports the two best things in life. I wouldn’t be nothing with-out my family. I’m thankful that me and my family have enough money to buy us food and get what we need and the clothes we have to keep warm. An-other thing I’m thankful for is my friends for some-body to talk to when I get bored. Nothing is more better than having your friends and family.
Sadie Ellison
I’m thankful for my family because they take care of me and buy me stuff. I’m thankful for God because he watches over me and protects me.

I’m thank-ful to have animals that I can love and take care of and they can guard me and keep me safe. I’m thankful to have sports that can keep you in shape and keep you healthy. I’m very thankful that there is foot-ball that you can play and get rough with and not have to worry about getting in trouble. I’m thankful to have a family that cares for me and keeps me safe and cares about what I do and what choices I make. I’m most thankful to have a God and a world that can watch over me and keep me safe when I make bad choices and when i’m in danger and a world with life and lives in it.
Sebastian King
I’m thankful for family and having a good life. Getting to meet new peo-ple and to go to school to make friends makes me happy. I’m thankful for there being games and technology because tech-nology can help expand our mind; but i’m also thankful for there being sports so people can have fun and learn about them. Forever, I am thankful for the stuff people have done for me throughout my life. I’m thankful for being able to walk on this earth and i’m thankful for a God to watch over me when i’m at my worst to help me through my worst.And i’m thankful for the army they have risked their life for us many has died for us and they serve for the U.S.A.And i’m thankful for being able to where clothes and shoes and hats and neck and wrist wear.I’m mostly thankful for the one put all of this stuff on this planet they call earth.So this is why i’m thankful.
Eighth Grade
I am thankful for teachers. Teachers are the ones who teach us our basic knowledge. They don’t just teach us subjects like math, reading, or sci-ence. They also teach us basic life skills like team-work and friendship. I am also thankful for other things like my health, my family, and I’m extremely thankful for all the friends I have. Family and friends are probably some of the best things God could have given us. Our friends are there when we need to lean on someone, and when they’re not, there our family is. Health is also something many people take for granted. Who knows, today we could be in the hospital deathly sick. Instead, we’re here doing normal everyday things, like writing this.
Matt Griffith
I’m thankful for my family and friends that God blessed me with and the sport basketball. I am thankful for the way I was raised and also for chicken of any kind. I’m thankful for a schooling experience. I may not like everyone in school but it can help me become something great and give me a chance to make friends. Also, I am thankful for xxxtentacion music.
Daniel James
I am thankful for my family and friends.I am thankful for all of the sol-diers that put there life on the line for me, I am thankful for Jesus for sacri-ficing his life for me.I am thankful for my parents for putting food on the table and clothes to wear and a roof over my head I am thankful for all of that.I am thankful for my teachers for putting up with and teaching me.I am so thank-ful for everything in life that god gives me.
Briley Panter
One thing to be thank-ful for is what God has giv-en me, such as family or the resources to make the world better. I’m thankful for being able to come home to a warm meal whereas other kids don’t know when their going to get their next meal. I am also thankful for having a place to go home to sleep, a place to be loved, and to go home to. Some have nowhere to sleep, and no one to love them. Living in this world there are many problems. There is really not much good in this world. There’s pain and suffering of others; no one is treated the same. We take what we have for granted because we have had everything given to us our entire life. I’m thankful for what I have and what difference I might be able to make in the world.
Sahara Cagle
I’m thankful for my grandparents and my par-ents because they show me love and support no matter what. They also provide shelter. I’m thank-ful to live in a free country along with that I’m thankful for the veterans, both alive and the ones that gave their lives to protect this country. Good friends are another thing I am thankful for because they provide me with good times and memories. Something I personally am thankful for is the 1st amendment with freedom of speech and re-ligion, as well as, the 2nd amendment because with-out one you wouldn’t have the other. Without the second amendment there is a possibility we would have a tyrannical govern-ment without self preser-vation. For all of these things, I am grateful.
Jessie Weaver
I am most thankful for my family. I love to spend time with them and i would give anything in the world to spend just a few more seconds with them.

I’m thankful for my great friends because they help me through a lot of things. They stay with me when times get rough and easy. They help me with everything. I couldn’t ask for better friends to have. I’m thankful for my mom because she has been there for me from the start. She has bought me all I have ever needed. My friends Haleigh and Sum-mer, I’m really thankful for because they put up with me every single day. They laugh with me and they help me when I’m sad or mad. I hope in high school they will still do that. One more thing I’m thankful for is God. He made Earth. He made everything. He made me and I’m thankful for being here today.

I am thankful for having the right to go hunting when it is the right season and it isn’t considered ille-gal. I am thankful as well for having the necessities needed to survive. I am al-so thankful for having a safe home where I can be protected if there ever is any threat to my life. I am very thankful for all my great family and friends that help me with things and tell me what I shouldn’t do because they care about me. I am thank-ful also for having money and entertainment so that my life isn’t completely boring.

I am thankful for my mom for putting a roof over my head and my nanny and my papa for supporting me. I am thank-ful for my mom for buying me things that I need. Without my mom and pa-pa, nanny, family I would be sad. I can’t do stuff without my family. If I had no family I don’t know where I would be at. If I didn’t have the family that have now I would lose my-self.
