Black news from Pasadena - Youth Page - Milan Walker on school - Makenna Walker on her birthday

First Day
By Milan Walker

Three weeks ago was my first day of school. I started third grade. My new teacher is Ms. Nhem. She is a good teacher. She was big sister's teacher last year.

My first day of school was awesome. The second I walked into my new classroom I knew I was going to have a great year.

That day, the first thing we did was draw a bubble map about ourselves and shared about it. After that we went to recess. After recess we played an awesome math game and I won. Then we went to lunch. We talked about homework after lunch. After school I went to the Boys and Girls club.

My Awesome Birthday
By Makenna Walker

For my nineth birthday we went to the Pasadena Courtyard Marriot Hotel. It is a very nice place.

When we got there it was exciting because my Mom got us the biggest room in the hotel. First we explored the hotel and then we went swimming.

September Topic: Peace: How to Get It and Keep It

If you turn on the news nowadays, it is hard to escape the non-stop visuals of violence and trauma across the Nation. It seems as though everyone is at odds with each other. Consider the most recent events unfolding in Ferguson, MO. After the passing of slain teen Michael Brown, many people all across America are lending their opinions and voices on the matter while others stand protesting and wanting to evoke change. The call for World Peace has never been so loud. The question is, how can we get it and keep it?



My Trips to London

I have visited London on three trips. My mom was born and raised in London. The flight from New York to London takes about five hours.

London is the capitol of England. I find it interesting that the steering wheel is on the right side and the people drive on the left side of the road.

There is Big Ben, a giant clock. It bongs loudly every hour on the hour. This really gets your attention. It is 16 stories high. Buckingham Palace is a great attraction and it is guarded by soldiers wearing tall fuzzy hats and red coats. People walk up and try to disturb them, however these well-trained soldiers will not even move or bat an eye.



From Zoe Land

Black news from Pasadena - Youth Page - Zoe Lopez and Palmdalizaloofy storyThere once was a girl named Gena who had lost her family. When she went to look for them, she ran into a nice bear who said he had seen them in the woods. When she went to search for her family, she saw a mean raccoon. The mean raccoon ate Gena, but then he spat her out but she wasn't hurt or sticky because the raccoon's tummy was clean. Once Gena was out of the mean raccoon's tummy, she still didn't know where to find her family. So she decided to look next to the woods in the city of Palmdalizaloofy.

Hey Auri!

So I just got a new boyfriend and everything was going great. School started back up again and I was happy to get back into the swing of things. All of my friends go to my school, so we all hang out. I have a lot of guy friends that I am close to and they all look at me as if I am their sister, as I look at them like they are brothers.

My boyfriend, however, gets very angry when I hang out with my guy friends. He will ignore me, not answer my calls, or texts for a period of time. It frustrates me because I want him to be accepting of my friends and I want us to be happy. I feel like I am doing something wrong, but I'm not . . . right? I don't know what to do.

He's jealous of my friends

Hey "He's jealous of my friends",

It sounds to me like you and your boyfriend still have a lot to learn about each other. You have to realize that relationships (besides family) are a meshing of lives. You and your boyfriend before you decided to embark on a journey together were living very separate lives with separate sets of people in those lives, i.e., friends.
