    “When This is Over”
    (Inspired by Laura Kelly Fanucci)

    By Ms. Throckmorton, Ms. McBratney and their students in Room 37

    When this is over,
    May we never again
    Take for granted
    Hanging out with friends
    Traveling to Chumash with my family
    Watching a movie in the theater with my family
    Seeing my lovely teachers
    Hugging my daughter, Leah, who is a nurse
    Visiting my cousins in San Diego and jumping and doing flips on the trampoline
    Swimming laps in the community pool with my brothers and my dad
    Toilet paper
    Being able to continue my acting job
    Going to school and seeing and talking to my friends
    Laughing with my friends
    Going to Las Vegas to see my friend Lea
    Spending time with my dad at the skate park in Tampa, Florida
    Seeing my cousin in Palmdale
    Being outside with my family
    Spending time with my son, Jackson
    Going to Six Flags and riding roller coasters
    Running around with my friends at school
    Being able to adopt a dog
    Going to the movies with my friends
    Swimming in the pool with my family
    Going downtown to skateboard with my dad,
    And having fun with friends and doing tricks at the skate park
    When this ends,
    May we find
    That we have become
    More like the people that
    Make lemonade out of lemons
    Help our moms and grandmothers cook
    Call their moms each morning to say, “I love you”
    Help people, no matter what
    Inspire people to help others that are homeless
    Model how to stay safe,
    And help our family take care of each other
