Halloween has always been a fun time for me and my family. We always dress up in our favorite outfits and go get some delicious candy! I like Halloween and I love to celebrate it because I love candy. I find it to be a ton of fun to just got door to door and see all the cool outfits and decorations that people do and set up. I also like going to “haunted houses” and getting scared. Also, we usually carve a few pumpkins with creepy or funny faces. It is just a really fun time in general.

I also love Halloween because of the nice cold weather. I like to wear hoodies and sweatshirts a lot and this is the perfect weather to wear them. Halloween is a very fun and unique holiday and I don’t think there should be an age limit to go trick or treating. Everyone likes candy, right?

Adventure Land!

One of the best times I’ve had with my family is when we went to Adventure Land. It was a really hot, beautiful day in the summer, and we were going to Adventure Land!

So, we all got packed up and ready to go on a long car ride. After hours of boring car rides we finally got to our destination. We all went in and had to decide where we were gonna go first. We went on a lot of fun rides and played a lot of fun games! Then, we got some food and drinks and relaxed for a bit. After that, we cooled off at the water park.

Finally, we went home and most of us slept all the way until we got home. It was a ton of fun and it was definitely one of the most fun times I’ve had with my family.

SBC Special Event: Raise Your Voice! – Every Day Heros

Who do you think of when someone says “helpful” or “doing the right thing”? Probably police, firemen, paramedics, and soldiers, right? Well, yes but there are also normal people who do the right thing every day! For example, you’re walking down the street and see an old lady drop her groceries, what do you do? Well, if you are one of these every day heroes then you would go and help her pick them up, and maybe even carry them to her car. Those are the type of people I would like to give recognition to right now.

So, the question is, what would you call those type of people? I, normally, would call them good people in general, and although that is true, that doesn’t seem like the right term for people who would can see people in need of help, and then come to the rescue! Those, are every day heroes, and they need some recognition. If you see somebody do a good deed and help someone in need, then you should walk up to them and tell them something as simple as “Good job man”, or “That was really nice of you”. Just to let them know they are being noticed and people are aware of the good things they are doing.

It is important to do good deeds and help others because then you will feel a lot better about yourself. I mean, compliments do feel good, right? Yes, and I guarantee you will get a ton of them if you become an every day hero and simply do the right thing. It shouldn’t go unnoticed, and it won’t if you show some recognition to other every day heroes, they’ll show some back!

So, my question to you is, will you recognize every day heroes? Are you an every day hero?
