Far, Far Away
By Kathleen W. Redman

1     Tomorrow is going to be a big day for Sam. It is Story Day in his class. It is Sam's turn to tell a story. He has a very special one to tell, too!

* * *

2     Sam packed the box very carefully. He taped it shut. He carried it very carefully to school with him. He put it on the teacher's desk.
3     "Good morning, class," Miss Marks said. "Today is Story Day. Sam is going to tell us a story this morning."
4     Sam stood up. He walked to the teacher's desk. He looked very proud. "My father is in the army," he said. "He is far, far away. Last week I got a letter from him. I would like to read part of it to you."
5     Sam opened the box. He took two sheets of paper out of the box. He unfolded them carefully. He began to read:
6     "Sam, I am sending you something very special with this letter. It is a kite. I want you to take very good care of it. A little boy made it. He is about your age. He lives here where I am."
7     Sam carefully took a small kite out of the box. It was red, yellow, and green. It was very beautiful.
8     "This is the kite," Sam said. He picked up the letter. He started to read again.
9     "The boy's name is Samir. He likes to play with the other boys. He likes to run. He is a very good climber, too. He always seems to be cheerful. He has a problem, though. Samir cannot hear. His mother said a bomb exploded close to him. The loud sound took away his hearing.
