Writing

I was sorting through some old boxes the other day and came across this:

Jessi Dixon
January 16, 1989

My dream is...to be a nurse and help sick people get well and work at the hospitle. I would like everybody be friends, have no rich or poor, have no hunger, have no murders, or suiside, have all smart, no teasing, hitting, kicking, punching, or in other words, no fighting. We all agree on the same Saturdy cartoons. Have all kids go to school. Have no child abuse, no anger, no crying. There would be no drugs and acahol and smoking. THE END (exact spelling and punctuation)

So who would've thought that 9 year old would someday really be a nurse after working in the hospital, would hate the differences between the rich and poor, would be working amongst hunger and need. The Saturday cartoons aren't so pertinent, but the "all kids go to school" is what we're working on. Oh the dreams of kids.

I've known that about you since you were about 2 years old! Not many kids get such a kick out of a family member who needs a bandaid. And actually, I think you may have been the one to instigate the fights...so you could FIX it all later on.

Did John and Dennis not like the same cartoons as you? Shame on them...
