A student’s poem of hope for a tough time

Tanith Frank of North Rockford Middle School cuddled this fall with Chillie, a counseling assistance dog

Tanith Frank, an eighth grader at North Rockford Middle School, sounds notes of courage and determination in her poem about getting through this challenging time, together.

We Will Remember
By Tanith Frank

As long as we work together,
we will get through this.
As long as we stay strong,
we will get through this.
As long as we don’t give up faith,
we will get through this.
As long as we hold on to hope,
we will get through this,
As long as we don’t give up,
we will get through this.
Although times are tough and we are in peril,
we will get through this.
Our courage will be remembered throughout history.
