SES 4th Grader Presents 'Loyalty' reading to the Smithville City Council

As part of the Bastrop County: A County of Character program, Smithville Elementary students were invited to share their personal writing on the Character Word of the Month.  The January Character Word of the Month is Loyalty, and Sydnie Taylor, a 4th grader in Mrs. White's class, presented her paper at the Smithville City Council Meeting this past Monday, January 9, 2012.

What loyalty means to me is being faithful, a good friend, and helpful.

For example a dog and cat were friends and the cat was in a burning house and the dog knew.  So he went in the house and started looking for her.  Suddenly he heard her scream (meow).  He found her, grabbed her by the neck, and took her out of the burning house and saved her life! Now that's what I call loyalty!

Loyalty has the same meaning as truth.  Which reminds me loyalty is exactly the same thing as being honest, truthful, and true.

Why loyalty is important is because if we didn't have loyal people where and how would this world be?!? Loyal people turn my frown upside down! How do loyal people affect you?
