This is the original link to this assignment. I chose to pick my favorite spot when it comes to going outside at my house. This is the view from my screened in porch on the front of my house. I love this view because there is so much to see in just two acres of land. The black-eyed susans just died because summertime is over, but usually there is fresh mulch and beautiful black-eyed susan flowers in the flower bed shown. I also love this location because I can hear all the little birds, squirrels, and other animals talking and singing to one another. It is just such a peaceful place for me. I love going out there and sitting on the porch to enjoy the nature and to get away from doing homework. It is a nice break of fresh air and a reminder of how grateful I am to have this view.
I also love my country so having the flag there always makes me happy and feel at peace. Today is actually 9/11 so this post is a good reminder for all of us to not forget about the tragedy that happened. We live in a beautiful world regardless of the bad events that have happened. This view reminds me that I am fortunate to live in this country with the animals reminding me of how free I actually am when sometimes I forget that I am free. Freedom is the most precious thing that we were given and the most forgotten also. When I step onto this porch, I instantly relax, and remind myself that I am fortunate for this view and nature itself.
