From CNN Producer Emily Kean:
My son Tommy is 7 years old and in first grade. He and his classmates worked on a poetry project this year in which they wrote about their favorite foods. Tommy’s poem was an “Ode to PB and J.”
The kids in Heather O'Reilly’s fourth grade class in Rochester, New York, also worked on a poetry project this spring. But instead of favorite foods, they wrote about the daily violence that they see on the streets of their neighborhoods, the guns they hear in the night, and their own very real fears about the future.
Their words broke my heart. Maureen McGuire of CNN affiliate WROC visited the class.
