By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.
Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint committee requested me to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayers to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many single favors of Almighty God. . .
Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next,to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is,or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country. . . and for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us. . .
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the Great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions. .
Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
President George Washington

Tips to Live By

Today, I will tell you why people are bullying. Based on what I know, people are broken down and they want other people to feel the same. I wish people who bully would know it won't take them anywhere. If someone is broken down will you be kind and be their friend? People who bully just get worse and worse. The next thing you know is that nobody is their friend. If you're a bully reading this I hope you change.
Some quick tips to remember:
- Share kind words with each other
- Don't bully
- Share with others
- Do not kick classmates
- Watch where you are going
- Be polite

'Pain and Errors' or Physical Education

Have you ever wished that the class of Physical Education in schools could be a student choice versus an academic requirement? Well, in this month’s Roosevelt Ram Perspective, I would like to make the case for PE choice. If band and choir are at the discretion of students, then shouldn’t PE be discretionary as well? Building muscles and increasing lung capacity should not be forced upon me. I choose the life of lard.
On the simplest level, I simply disdain running and jumping; being jostled about is not my forte. Physical activity for myself is falling into bed; soaring across the couch; and/ or lifting the fork from the dessert dish. You must understand that a person like me lacks the physical prowess and agility to succeed in PE. The voices in my head are telling me I can’t do it.
Superheroes love PE and they should, but sidekicks like me would prefer a choice. How many times must I be creamed by a dodgeball or struggle to keep my lungs in my chest cavity? With great lard comes great obesity. I propose another alternative to PE: naptime.
My teacher has angry eyebrows now. Apparently, he has just finished reading my paper through Google Docs. His response, “You are not Winnie the Pooh!”
