Everyone Needs Help

everyone needs helpEveryone needs help sometimes and that’s okay! Sometimes parents or teachers can help. Other times it can be friends you know or friends you get to know that can help. Everyone needs help especially if we feel different or can’t do something that the other kids can do or do better. Sometimes everyone needs help  just because! I learned thateveryone needs help it’s okay to ask for help and it’s even okay to accept help from others when I don’t ask. After all help can really make us feel like others care about our well being. Being alone when we feel sad doesn’t make things better. In fact it usually makes us feel worse. Look at this picture of me in my red wagon. Will I be able to go anyplace if someone doesn’t help me? I don’t think so!

Look at my new friend Pedro. He was feeling very sad because he couldn’t get the basketball to go in the basket. He had never played basketball before so he wasn’t good at getting it in the basket like the kids who shot hoops their whole lives. I told him not to worry. I told him that everyone needs help sometimes… even me! I told him that I couldn’t get the ball in the basket either because I couldn’t throw a ball. I could only play fetch.

A little while later, Pedro met his new best friend. His name is Alex and he told Pedro that he couldn’t get the basketball to go in the hoop very often either. Then he told Pedro that he was really good at playing the guitar. Pedro stopped crying and he told Alex that he always wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Alex told him that he would teach him and asked him if he wanted to come to his house after school one day. Pedro was so happy.

So now you maeveryone needs helpy be wondering if I am still in my red wagon just waiting for someone to come and pull it for me. Well… Guess what? Everyone needs help sometimes so I barked loudly and shouted. “Hey Sally, please come and help me.” Sally came and started to pull the wagon. She said, “Don’t worry Rugby. Everyone needs help sometimes… even me!”

I am your friend Rugby Jones and don’t you ever forget it!

911 Bullies

911Today is September 11, 2015 or as many people say, 911. Grownups have serious memories about what happened on this day in 2001. I wasn’t even born then so I only know what people tell me about it. What I do know is that I am very proud to be an American! My ancestors were from Wales but I was born right here in the good old USA! I feel good every time I look at our flag because I have learned about history and the things that make our country so great!

From what I hear about 911, some people decided to try to hurt us here in our own country and that was pretty scary. The good part is that we are so much more prepared for those kinds of things now. I guess we got much smarter. Just like there are good people, there are also bullies in the world.

Bullies seem to try to hurt people and the victims need to get smarter so that they can take care of themselves better. Lots of times, bullies think that they are smarter and stronger and they think that the rules don’t apply to them. Guess what? They are wrong!

9-11 Bullies

Every time someone helps the victim of a bully and every time a victim stands up to a bully, the bullies lose their strength and that’s a good thing. It is the same with the bullies from 9-11 and the same for other bullies. Even though we are kids, we can do things that will make the world a better place just by being kind and helping out those who need support in our own schools and neighborhoods.


Today is a special day to honor our soldiers because they are doing all they can to support our people and our country so there won’t be another 911. It’s so important to say “thank you” to everyone who helps us in any way. I love to say “thank you.” How about you?
