Schools Are For Fish

Schools Are For Fish
"You can not make a child walk before they are ready. You can not make a child read before they are ready. You can however make a child think they are dumb or learn to hate reading if you push them before they are capable." -Stephanie, Throwing Marshmallows

My Daughter, The Songwriter


Ok, my 9 year old daughter wrote this song recently after our dog died. I'm going to post it here so you all can see it.

When your family dies their spirits are still with you
You will feel them
You will remember them
And you will remember how much they loved you
And how much you want to see them
But you can't, and you wish they were still with you
And they will be watching over you.
