We Are All Equal! By Melle Glatt (Age 10)

Hi there. My name is Melle Glatt. I am a fourth grade student and something that makes me different is that I have glasses. This is because I have a really rare eye sight that makes me not see at all far away. Wait, wait hold up because maybe I’m exaggerating a little. It is hard for me to see far away. That’s more like it! I also had to wear a patch for one ½ years. This makes me unique.

My invisible difference is that I am Jewish. Many people have said to me that being Jewish is wrong and this used to always bug me and so I used to not bring it up. Until one day a kid came up to me and said, “Hey, go and pray in your stupid religion.” And I said to him, “Go away because you pray just like I do.” And that was the last time anyone has said anything to me about being Jewish. Now I love being Jewish and people respect me for who I am.

I learned to flaunt my visible and invisible difference by not caring what people say. I will stand up for myself and remember that everyone is different it just happens that my differences are that I have glasses and I am Jewish. Even on the darkest days I remember to treat others how I want to be treated because we are all equal and we all are created the same. It’s just that we look different.
