Global Goal 3: Good Health And Well Being
By: Ashlyn Graham
Global goal 3 is good health and well being; this makes sure that everybody is well and healthy. There are some people in different places in the world who are sick and/or hurt but they do not have access to good doctors. This global goal is really important so then everybody will have the good health they need. A way that people can achieve this goal is if they are a doctor, they could go to those other countries and help the people who are there. People could build doctors’ offices all over the place. Then, not that much people would have to suffer and/or need to travel very far to find doctors. In conclusion, global goal 3, which is good health and well being is important for everybody to be solving.
Global Goal 2: No Hunger
By: Ashlyn Graham
What is no hunger? It’s global goal 2. No hunger means that nobody is hungry or starving or something. Basically. No hunger is important because then nobody will be starving or hungry so then people can live a good life so then they can actually live. No hunger is important.
So what is it, basically?
Everybody knows what hunger is-you’re hungry. Well, we don’t want any of that with global goal 2. So global goal 2 wants us to achieve people being hungry to make them not hungry.
What’s so important about no hunger?
Obviously no hunger is important so then nobody gets hungry, because being hungry is definitely never ever good.
So in conclusion, no hunger is a important topic because then nobody would be hungry. This is what global goal 2: No Hunger means and what it is about.
Clean water and sanitation is global goal 6. Basically, what it is, is having clean water to drink and use. For example, we use shower and sink water-that is clean and sterile water. And so is drinking water. Clean water is not sewer water, it’s just the water we drink and use. Clean, sterile water is very important in our lives so we don’t get sick or even perish or something. Basically we need to not pollute water or anything. Literally, people do pollute them. And we can clean and purify that one day. We need to help solve this problem because if we do not, then we will not have any water to drink one day. This is what clean water and sanitation is and why it matters-we need it, because it is essential for us to live. And people today don’t really preserve it that good. So we should probably help to clean it or else we won’t really be making the world a better place to be at. Overall, clean water and sanitation does obviously matter for us to be alive.
What are global goals?

If you have any questions about why we use global goals and what they mean, put in their number and I’ll get back to you with my best answer as soon as I can. Check back every day to see what other people comment, please!
Again, why are global goals so important, anyway? Global goals can help the world be cleaner, safer, happier, awesomer, and smarter. In conclusion, these are the reasons why we should probably try to help reach the global goals. -Ash G., Saydoth Wanda Graham, Charm, and Luckie Clever Clover the 1st

I believe that you know what cats are. Of course, many “cat ladies” around the world own cats. “Oh, dear. Whatever shall I do with you, Leaf?” Jenny was a kind old cat lady. She had found a cat on the side of the road, and she named it Leaf right away. Jenny lived with her favorite (and only) brother, Johnnie. Jenny had used to have many siblings, 5, to be exact, but her only one left was Johnnie. Johnnie was usually “a sad old man”, as he told everyone, and he only 30 years old! Jenny was twenty. Johnnie never really was a happy person, but he was trying to be as cheerful as he could. One day, when Jenny found a cat, a amber colored Abyssinian cat, she named it.“Leaf?! Ha. Who would ever name some cat that name?” Johnnie was kind of grumpy today, thought Jenny; Jenny had gone to bed in her room. She went out to “Buy Things for Pets”, which was her favorite supermarket. (It was kind of like a Walmart.) She had bought Leaf a bed there, and once she did, the next day, at the exact same time, she found another cat! He was a Norwegian Forest cat, and that was Johnnie’s only favorite kind of cat. It was the only one that he didn’t yell at it, and almost even worse, Johnnie did that and he also let the dog out to get it when it went on the lawn when Jenny was out somewhere. The dog’s name is Digger. Digger is a fully black dog, a Labrador Retriever, and he has red eyes and a dark red collar and it says, “DIGGER. RETURN TO JOHNNIE AND JENNY IF FOUND ONCE LOST, OR DIGGER WILL DIG IN THE GRASS OR ANYWHERE AND HE’S OUGHTA THINK, I WILL BURY YOU THERE.” That’s what his other tag said, and then the other tag was his certified rabies tag to show he wasn’t a rabies dog. The Jay family only had two other dogs that looked the exact same as Digger: Grabber and Jaws. But since Jaws was a gray dog who had a white collar, he used to be black but now his chest is white and he eats white Puppy Peroni sticks (a different kind of food instead of for Pup-Peroni) and he liked to eat a LOT. Grabber looked at Digger all the time. He tried to grab him. But then Jenny found out that Grabber was grabbing Johnnie’s sock one time, and she helped Johnnie and got a doggy gate that Grabber could NOT jump over and he could NOT open it or go through it. But, the other dogs could. Grabber was the thickest dog, and he did not like to be too short and not too strong to get over the gate. But, Jenny always figured things out. One day, Leaf was not there! Just the Norwegian Forest cat that Jenny found. Then, a Berman cat came, Persian, Siamese, and so on. At the end, Jenny had literally 10 cats! (Not including Leaf.) “Siamese, you’re Sam, Persian, you’re Percy, Berman, you’re… uh, well, I don’t think Johnnie would be too happy that any of you guys are even here anyway. I guess I’ll just call you-” “WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!” Johnnie was bursting in the room, letting all of the three dogs come in. Luckily, the cats went into their big 6-foot Cat Tower. It was tilted, and it looked like a doll house for cats. The dogs didn’t know what to do. They thought it was a regular house, inside of Jenny’s room! But, Jenny noticed something: Leaf was in the Cat Tower! “Leaf!” Jenny said, shooing all the dogs except Jaws first, and I will tell you that she never had to be rude like she did with the other two dogs, and she left Jaws in the room. I know, Jaws sounds like a really scary name for a dog, but honestly, he was only a Great Dane and Greyhound and Bloodhound mix. He was the only dog that only barked if there was a fire truck. “Leaf,” Jenny called, “I’m going to introduce you to Jaws. Jaws, say hi!” Jaws panted, smiling, for as long as someone could say hi. Leaf walked over, and she smiled. “See? I thought I would never be able to help you, Leaf, but it seems as if you have a friend!” Jenny exclaimed. She finally realized that she helped her cat, and she thought that she would help her brother, too. He was doing “Shakepaw!” with Grabber, and sticking a treat in between his claws, and he was also doing “Twirl around!” with Digger. He took Digger’s collar off, and he did that to Grabber. Grabber looked and tried to do what Digger was doing now: catching his tail. Digger’s big, bushy tail was appealing to dogkind, and Grabber’s thin little non-short tail was hard to catch, because it was so thin. Digger could just grab one of his tail furs, and he’d be all right. “Johnnie?” Jenny called, peering into the living room. “What do you want?” Johnnie mumbled. “Johnnie Jay! For Cat’s Claw sake, I can’t even hear you!” Jenny looked worried. Jenny squeezed Johnnie’s entire body once he got up, and said, “What?” That night, Jenny went into her bedroom after eating fish burgers with cheese balls, caesar salad, veggies and dip, and iced tea, and water. A white Angora cat, Moon, came and sat by Jenny’s head when she was sleeping in bed. Then, Ben, the Berman cat, came and slept on Jenny’s FACE. “Ben,” Jenny whispered, “Go to Johnnie’s room and make him happy. I’m sure that he would like a face warmer.” Jenny whispered into Ben’s ear. Ben walked mover to Johnnie’s room, slithered through the door, which was cracked open, just a little bit. “Ben?” Johnnie scowled. “What’re you doing here?” he tiredly mumbled. “Grrr…” Jaws was growling. “Oh, shut those little jaws,” Johnnie scowled again. “Grr!” This time, Johnnie heard a unlocking a door with the wrong key sound. “J-Jenny?” Johnnie scaredly called for his sister, and Jenny woke up. “What?” Jenny said, replying, sounding scared, too. I would never had done such a thing, replying in the middle of the night. “3:00. Someone’s outside,” Johnnie answered. “And I think you should go and get them.” Johnnie went on. “No,” Jenny cried. “I can’t. I can’t do it, I’m sorry. I can’t I can’t do it, Johnnie. I’m sorry. Johnnie, I can’t do it…” Jenny’s talking stopped as Johnnie petted Jaws and he calmed down. The siblings were talking on the phone to each other, and Johnnie decided to go up and check on Jenny. Besides, Johnnie was the one who was the oldest, and he was 10 years older than Jenny! “Jenny?” Johnnie asked, climbing up the ladder as he opened up the attic door; that’s where Jenny slept. “Johnnie…” Jenny cried. “I… I saw something looking at me through the window.” she said, closing the window. Johnnie helped Jenny because she was scared. As soon as Johnnie got closer to Jenny, because he was tiptoeing like Jenny was a ferocious bear, and that Billy, standing under her knees, Billy was the picnic basket. He flicked on the lightswitch. “It’s okay, Billy.” Jenny shivered, petting Billy. “Okay! Well, that’s finished,” Johnnie said, putting on a warm smile. “It’ll be okay!” he said, acting very happily, like he just caught the last rainbow trout in the stream. “No!” Jenny cried, backing away from Johnnie. “Just be happy that I got my AR-15 with me, and-” “No, you did not! That’s why I’m backing away from you!” Jenny whimpered. “Go get it! Pump shotgun, AR-15, and your Golden Scar!” Jenny demanded, looking at Johnnie sternly, like he was a child, who had just stolen the cookies or ate the cake when he wasn’t supposed to. “Howl!” Jenny and Johnnie jumped, holding each other. “JAWS!” Jenny ran down the ladder. “Jaws?” Jenny cried as she walked down the opposite hallway as Johnnie. Johnnie was going into his room, to get his guns. “I see a person in the window!” Johnnie exclaimed, and Jenny heard him scaredly. “I’m out of ammo, except for the Pump Shotgun. It has about five bullets left!” Johnnie said, walking worriedly over to Jenny. “NO!” Jenny said. “DIGGER!” she screamed. “Digger? Oh, yeah!” Johnnie cried, too. “Jaws? You find him? I got Grabber,” Jenny said like she was the leader of the entire world. “I got Grabber, he’s all right.” Jenny repeated. “Jaws’s outside! I let him out at 1:00, because he wanted to go outside.” Johnnie said. “But, that’s not Jaws or Digger. It’s a bear.” Jenny pointed out. “DIGGER! JAWS! PEPPERONI STICKS ARE HERE!” Jenny and Johnnie called out for their dogs out the window, once they were sure the bear went away. Digger and Jaws staggered out of a bush, scared, with their tails under their legs. But once they were back inside, not hungry anymore, they were okay. I would’ve never let them out, though. This is how 13 cats, 3 dogs, and 2 humans were the happiest people in the world.
The Adventures of Sadie
Hi! It’s me, Sadie Wanda Graham, and do you like my stories of me? I think they’re really cool! But anyway, if you never read my other Sadie stories, then that’s okay. You don’t need to. But, my favorite sister ever, Ash, calls me Sahd Tahd Tahd Tahds, Yes. She Is. That’s my name! Well, anyway, on May 14th, Ash took me outside and I saw a annoying neighbor and she was crawling around on her lawn!?!?! I know, right?! That’s so weird that someone would do something like that! But anyway, just wanted to let you know. That’s a thing that I saw. I also smelled chicken because I was right by the deck, which is where the grill is at. I smelled chicken, because Dom Doms and Mommyboos (what I call Dom and Mom) were making chicken. On the grill. And it smelled heavenly. Well, anyway. These are NOT fake stories and I hope that you guys can give me some ideas for the new Batwoman series! Thanks for reading, and bye!
Batty for Bats!
By Ashlyn Graham
Have you ever wondered about bats? Bats are nice animals that can help us, and the environment. I think that we should build bat houses in the park and the surrounding areas because of this.
Bats are Nice!
Bats are nice animals that help us, and our environment. You might be wondering, why? Or, how? Bats can eat harmful bugs that eat farmers’ crops. That makes our food healthier, because the farmer does not need to waste millions of his well-earned money, just to get these really expensive pesticides so that the bugs don’t harm the food. Bats help by eating them. Bats are also nice because they pollinate plants, just like bees! Bats are very special, even though they are not the biggest population.
Why are bats limited?
Bats have a small population. People can harm them by going and cutting trees, where a bat might be sitting. Another problem can be people going into caves, where bats are. That’s probably how the white-nose sickness came from. They had a type of sickness on them, and they went into the cave, and they spread it on one bat. That poor bat was contagious, and sadly, the white-nose syndrome spread all around the bat population. What the white-nose syndrome does to bats, is, it weakens their skin and their wings. It wakes them up from their winter hibernation. Of course, the bat is hungry. The bat can’t fly because of the weakness on its skin. There is no food in the wintertime. The wintertime weather is cold, and the bat can’t find any food, neither can it be warm. Do you think that there would be mosquitoes, the bat’s food, when it’s snowing? Of course, you shouldn’t! The bat freezes on the outside, and it gets the fungus of the white-nose syndrome goes on it, and the bat starves to death, and it freezes to death. That’s why we should get bat houses. It can protect the bats from freezing.
How can we help?
Bat houses help. It gives bats a different place to live. If the bat lived in a tree, and someone cut that tree down because of deforestation, we can give them a better chance of not dying out.
More about Bats
- Bats are the world’s only flying mammal.
- Bats pollinate crops.
- Bats eat bugs that harm crops.
- Bats don’t have rabies. Actually, there are very few bats that do.
- Bats don’t live in hair.
- Bats don’t suck blood. Only vampire bats do.
- Bats don’t harm people. Vampire bats only harm the things that they drink blood from, which does not include people.
- There’s no reason to be afraid of bats. A Clear Summary of Bats
Bats. the world’s only flying mammal species, are endangered because of white-nose syndrome. We can build bat houses to help save them, because they do very good things for people. I don’t think that we should be afraid of bats, because they don’t harm people. A way that we can help bats, is, we can make bats some bat houses.
Bats use something called echolocation. This is when bats are flying around in the night, and they want to catch food. They make a high-pitched noise that’s above our hearing range. That noise bounces off of a moth or mosquito. It can tell the bat what speed the thing is going, if it’s even moving at all, and what it looks like. The bat’s echo can bounce back to the bat. Echolocation is called echolocation because the bat echoes, to find the location of food. Bats really aren’t blind. Bats can actually see pretty good! Bats just can’t really see good in the nighttime, when they are awake, because usually bats aren’t awake in the daytime-because bats are nocturnal.
Why should I build bat houses?
I think you should help save bats by building bat houses because bats can help pollinate crops. Bats can also get sick with WNS, aka White-Nose Syndrome. If bats can get a home, they can probably not get sick. It’s also, for me, okay if a bat wants to live in my house.
Lots of people just aren’t really convinced yet, of why we should help bats. But here’s what they think:
Myth: Bats always get tangled in human hair.
Fact: Bats do not become entangled in human hair deliberately, though they may dive for flying insects near a person’s head.
Myth: All bats bite and carry rabies and diseases.
Fact: Not all bats bite and carry diseases. Bats seldom transmit disease to other animals or humans, but bats are wild animals and should not be disturbed, in case they are carrying certain diseases.
Myth: All bats drink blood.
Fact: The bats of Newfoundland and Labrador do not feed on the blood of people or animals. The little brown bat is a harmless insect eater. With the exception of the tropical Vampire bat (not found in Canada), most bats feed on insects or fruit. Soon an anticoagulant (a substance that hinders the clotting of blood) found in the saliva of the vampire bat may be used to treat heart patients.

Please help bats! These reasons are why you should help to build bat houses and save our bats!
