Journal Entry, First Day of 6th Grade
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     
Dear Me,

 
2     I'm so glad this day is over. Mom's favorite saying is, "Whatever you do comes back to you." I hate it when she says that, and I'm simply mortified that today it proved to be true.
 
3     I thought about skipping today's entry in my journal, but maybe if I write about it, I'll remember never again to behave as I did a year ago. What I did last year came back to haunt me today. I want to climb the highest building in town and shout, "It's not FAIR!!! Why ME???" In my heart, though, I know I deserved it, though I didn't enjoy it. The Golden Rule tells us to treat others the way we want to be treated. Today I was treated as I had treated others last year.
