The last one to share. This essay really touched my heart. I pray you have been blessed reading the thoughts and hearts of fifth grade children.
“Romantic love to me means: someone who you care enough for that you’d do anything for and they care enough for you to do the same thing, or family. As some people like to call it, that is what I call romantic love is: never wanting to be away from one certain person, that’s what romantic love is to some people.
To all romantic love is the thing that bonds people together. To some it is hope, it is the thing that everybody needs, without it, we’d be lost, we would be emotionless robots.”

“You might think Romantic Love is mushy and gross but im shure when you get older you will be interested.
Take your perents as an example my perents have been maired for about 15 years. You have to have a bond with someone. Its not about how cute they are its about what you like about him or her. If I was looking for a guy I would want someone who is helpful, smart, sweet, loyal, honest, understanding and sporty.
Some people have been mairied for 75 they ate at the same table and sleep in the same bed. They love each other a lot. They have a bond.”

Hearts and Love fill the air in Elementary this week. I would like to share a few “Writing Prompts” written by Fifth grade students. Generally in the age of eleven, about to turn twelve this year.
Their words describing “Romantic Love” touched my heart. When reading, please keep in mind, only one is written from a child’s view who has both father and mother continuously in their house and lives;each articulated “romantic love” beautifully. Proud of each of them:)

“What I think love is about. This is going to be based on my grandmother and grandfather they have been married for forty-six years that’s a long time to me. They also are bestfriends. They love each other. Always helpful to each other. They still hold hands. They have strong feelings for each other. That is what I think love is about.”
